Tuesday, April 20, 2021: Stream Restoration: Is it Helping Our Streams and the Chesapeake Bay?

Date: April 20, 2021

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free UMCES Webinar:   Healthy streams are dynamic, diverse ecosystems that provide society with many benefits. Since many streams in the Chesapeake Bay watershed are severely degraded, stream restoration is increasingly used to improve their water quality. Yet, the effectiveness of projects implemented is still questionable, and recovery is a slow, complex task. Dr. Solange Filoso has monitored restored streams in Maryland for over a decade. In this seminar, she will share her assessment of restoration effectiveness, and discuss the importance of monitoring data to policy and management decisions in the region.

Presented by Dr. Solange Filoso
