Earth Day 2021 is almost here and people around the planet will be celebrating its beauty and working together towards a greener future. Like the larger Earth, the Chesapeake Bay watershed is also stunningly beautiful, home to many humans and vibrant wildlife, and in need of collective action. We will be reflecting on decades of Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts informed by the journeys of three panelists with multidimensional experiences in various components of the Bay health effort, including the Bay Program, research, and local communities.

Join us on Wednesday, April 21st, from 12-1:30 pm to reflect on the Chesapeake Bay preservation and restoration effort; we have come far, learned many lessons, and still have a long way to go.

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.

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.
