  2. Photography Exhibit at Artworks@7th Fine Art & Unique Gifts

    April 6, 11:00 AM - April 30, 5:00 PM @ Artworks@7th Fine Art & Unique Gifts

    The photography of John J. (Jack) Young is the featured exhibit for the month of April at Artworks@7th. The show combines street photography, in the form of street musicians who entertain us as we pass on by from one place to another, with landscape and seascape photographs that evoke a sense of melodic inspiration - with the overriding theme being “Everyday Melodies.” Street photography and landscape/seascapes - a little something for everyone! There will be an Opening Reception on April 8th from 1:00-4:00 PM, with special musical guest Aimee Henderson, playing the soothing, haunting sounds of the Bowed Psaltery. So come on out, meet the artist, support your local arts community, and peruse the photography of John J. Young as well as the work of the other creative and talented local artists – you’ll be impressed with the artistic quality and creativity of the work and you might just find that something special for friends, family, or even for yourself!

  4. Science for Citizens Seminar: A Plastic Ocean Film Screenings

    April 11, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Chesapeake Biological Laboratory

    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. Little is known about how often dolphins come into the Chesapeake Bay, how long they spend there, what areas of the Bay they are using and why. Dr. Helen Bailey and her team at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory have been frequently detecting dolphin calls in the Bay. They are now working to develop an observation network that will provide information on dolphin distribution and encourage local residents to report their sightings and learn more about these animals.

    Join us at the oldest state-supported marine lab on the East Coast to learn about innovative research being pioneered by CBL scientists.

In A Plastic Ocean, an international team of ocean ambassadors, adventurers, and researchers, including CBL’s own Dr. Gonsior, go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine Ocean. After viewing this documentary and its never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health, Dr. Gonsior will answer questions from audience members.
