In 2014, the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement outlined dozens of outcomes organized under ten goals for the health and protection of the watershed Many of the outcomes are meant to be realized by 2025. With this deadline approaching fast and seeing various degrees of success so far, how does the restoration community use tools and funding increases to more effectively advance multiple outcomes?

Join us on Wednesday, October 19th, from 12-1 pm for an introduction to the targeting tools portal developed by USGS in partnership with USEPA, NOAA, and the Chesapeake Conservancy and a discussion on achieving restoration goals.

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 and watch our 50th anniversary video.

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.
