Of the 18 million people in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, no two are the same. Each person has their own beliefs, concerns, and motivations. Acknowledging this, how do we align social behavior, community sustainability, and the wider Bay restoration effort to achieve the best outcome for all?

Join us on Wednesday, February 16th, from 12-1 pm as we continue January’s discussion on incorporating social science into Bay restoration with two new perspectives.

About CRC Roundtable

The Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) comprises seven research and education institutions around the Chesapeake Bay, convening with the goal of using science to inform management. We launched the CRC Roundtable, a monthly virtual seminar series, to host targeted, inclusive, and informed conversations matching scientific advances and management needs in a way that moves us collectively forward toward decision-making for effective and sustainable management of the Chesapeake Bay, its watershed, and its living resources. Learn more about what we accomplished in 2021 in our annual report.

The lunchtime seminars will invite a diverse range of researchers, managers, and other professionals to have timely conversations around topics relevant to the Chesapeake partnership. The seminars also build connectivity across participating organizations and identify ways to increase our collective competency for decision making.
