September marks the two year anniversary of the first CRC Roundtable. When establishing this platform, one of CRC’s priorities was to create a space where all people could gather and have an open, honest discussion. To celebrate the Roundtable’s birthday, we’re taking a look at lessons learned from other successful collaborative efforts as well. Both the Delmarva Land and Litter Collaborative and Lancaster Clean Water Partners have achieved environmental goals through convening varied interests in an environment of mutual respect.

Join us on Wednesday, September 21st, from 12-1 pm to discuss best practices for bringing diverse stakeholders together and moving the collective towards environmental wins.


  • Michele Drostin, Delmarva Land and Litter Collaborative
  • Allyson Gibson, Lancaster Clean Water Partners

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 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.
