Science for Citizens Seminar: Foraging in the Chesapeake

Tuesday, April 25

Join us at the oldest state-supported marine lab on the East Coast to learn about innovative research being pioneered by CBL scientists. Our faculty and graduate students are developing new approaches to solving the environmental management problems facing Calvert County, our nation, and the world. Each talk will be presented by an UMCES scientist and will inform the public about a featured research effort. Every year we produce a data-driven report card for the Patuxent River and Chesapeake Bay. We are learning what causes the report card grades to degrade and to improve, and have instituted a suite of activities to raise the grades. But the rigid nutrient diet, changes to fisheries practices and work to preserve intact habitats will not be enough to restore these bodies of water. So Dr. Dennison will talk about how to account for climate change, land use development and population pressure (both human and animal) so that we can raise the report card grades.
