Gerald Winegrad, a former Maryland senator, environmentalist, and attorney has devoted 39 years of his 59 years as an activist to personal involvement in formal efforts to restore the Chesapeake Bay. He will examine both the successes and failures toward this goal and pull no punches in revealing the inconvenient truths on the issues. His presentation will examine measurers to limit nutrients and sediment that are causing dead zones and living resources to decline, and address steps we, as individuals, can take to ensure the Bay life we once enjoyed. 

Mr. Winegrad is a life-long Marylander, environmental attorney, former state senator, member of the Chesapeake Bay Commission, and a graduate school professor—teaching a course he wrote on Bay restoration.
