  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: Raising the Grade: Patuxent River and Chesapeake Bay Report Cards

    April 18, 7:00 PM - 8:00 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. 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.
