Breakfast on the Bay is a signature live talk Summer series that celebrates the companies, communities, and conservationists who live, work and play in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
As a retired professor from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, Dr. Walter Boynton is a scientific storyteller. Since 1975, Walter’s research has focused on estuarine ecology, specifically, issues related to eutrophication (the excess of nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus, washing off from land), and ecosystem restoration. For almost 50 years, Walter has been helping lead the research efforts on what ails the Chesapeake Bay – and has been doing so with humor and optimism!
Taking place at the newly renovated Annapolis Maritime Museum in the Maritime Republic of Eastport, Maryland, this edition of Breakfast on the Bay will provide an overview and history of the ecology, actions, and policies related to the Chesapeake Bay, from where we started to where we are now. Join Dr. Walter Boynton and Kate Fritz, CEO of the Alliance, for what will surely be a humorous and engaging walk down memory lane.
