Our community within the Chesapeake Bay watershed includes tens of thousands of people who identify as American Indian. We all have a common goal of restoring and protecting the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed. How can we better listen to, engage with, and support the restoration work that American Indian communities are doing?

Join us on Wednesday, June 23rd, from 12-1pm to listen to speakers from the Nansemond Indian Nation and the Upper Mattaponi Indian Tribe. We will be talking about their experiences with restoration projects and partnerships.


  • Nikki Bass, Nansemond Indian Nation
  • Leigh Mitchell, Upper Mattaponi Indian Tribe

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.
