Donald Jones assisted the Department of Defense in producing a guide to natural and historic areas on DoD lands (totaling some 350,000 acres) within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.  The watershed extends from upstate New York to southern Virginia and from the mountains of West Virginia to the Atlantic coast, a 64,000 square mile drainage area.

The access guide, intended primarily for military personnel assigned to the region but available to the public, summarizes the various physiographic regions that make up the Bay's extensive watershed and the human history of the region from prehistory to the present.  The access guide also provides a directory of military installations, including Army Corps of Engineers reservoirs and recreational areas, with locational maps and lists of the types of recreational activities, natural areas, and historic sites that are publicly-accessible at 48 of the Defense Department's installations within the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
