Environmental Education Series

This summer we have partnered with the Maryland State Extension Office and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to explore the state of our bay, storm water pollution, as well as ways we can make our local environment cleaner and healthier for all.

Welcome to the Chesapeake!
Join David Tana, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s (CBF) Maryland Outreach Manager, on an introductory journey to learn about the Chesapeake Bay – a true National Treasure – and how CBF is working to Save the Bay.

Date: Wednesday, June 9     Time: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm (Virtual)

 

State of the Bay: Are We Making Progress?
This presentation will provide a high-level overview of the current health of the Chesapeake Bay. Participants will learn how to find, read, and interpret water quality evaluations like the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Bay Health and Watershed Health report cards. Presented by the University of Maryland Sea Grant Extension Program.

Date: Friday, June 11     Time: 10:00 am – 11:00 am (Live or Virtual)

 

Agriculture and the Chesapeake Bay – Why It Matters and What You Can Do
Join David Tana, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s (CBF) Maryland Outreach Manager, to learn about the work this organization is doing across the watershed to help reduce pollution coming from agricultural lands, while helping farms ensure their futures.

Date: Friday, June 18     Time: 10:00 am – 11 :00 am (Virtual)

 

Stormwater Walking Tour
Our storm water systems were designed so that runoff would be both “out of sight and out of mind.” However, once you know what you are looking for, you will see storm water infrastructure (both good and bad) everywhere. This walking tour will demonstrate how to perform a basic stormwater site assessment to determine what in a landscape is contributing to excess runoff, and what can be done to help mitigate the impacts of development on water quality. Presented by the University of Maryland Sea Grant Extension Program.

Date: Wednesday, June 23     Time: 10:00 am – 11:30 am (Live)
