BALTIMORE, Md. – How science is informing Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts is the topic of a free public lecture at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront hotel on August 3, 2011, at 6:00 p.m.

U.S. Geological Survey Chesapeake Bay studies scientists Peter Claggett, Vicki Blazer, and Alicia Berlin will discuss the new science and cooperative efforts being applied to understand the factors contributing to ecosystem health and to restoring the nation’s largest estuary and its watershed.  Their lecture is titled “Science to Inform Chesapeake Bay Restoration Efforts:  A Discussion of Land Use, Water Quality Fish, & Wildlife Conditions”. 

The Chesapeake Bay has long been a favorite destination for Maryland, Virginia and District of Columbia area residents to escape city stress and relax. The Chesapeake watershed also provides important habitat for many fish and wildlife species. However, the 17 million people in the Bay watershed have contributed to its decline over the past several decades. But, a new optimism is spreading among scientists and resource managers working to restore the Bay.


When: August 3, 2011 (Wednesday)

Where: Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel
Harborside BallroomA & B, Level 4
700 Aliceanna Street
Baltimore, MD 21202
