The pathway to understanding is easier for many people when diagrams, illustrations, photographs, or video footage are involved. Visual explanations can increase information retention, transmit information more quickly, and motivate viewers more effectively than other forms of information. In today’s fast-paced society, there is a lot of competition for people’s attention and time, but the Chesapeake Bay restoration effort depends on reaching people and impacting personal and collective behaviors. Art is an effective tool to communicate the science of Chesapeake Bay restoration to engage and motivate our community.


Join us on Wednesday, December 13th, from 12-1 pm to learn how art and science can move the Chesapeake Bay restoration effort forward.

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 2022 in our annual report and watch our 50th anniversary video.

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. The Roundtable is supported in part by the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office.
