Lecture Title: The State of the Chesapeake Bay and What You Can Do to Help
The Chesapeake Bay is a national treasure and a defining feature of our State. Sadly, the Bay is an endangered waterway facing many challenges essential to restoring its health. This lecture will look at some of the major challenges as well as actions which are or can be taken to restore the Bay to a healthy ecosystem. Specifically, we will focus on actions individuals and businesses can take to create “Bay Wise” landscapes that are not only healthy and beautiful, but also sustainable. Lecture will be given by Paul R. Beares who is a certified Maryland Master Gardener (Harford County) with over 900 hours of volunteer service and a Chesapeake Bay Foundation – Chesapeake Bay Steward. He is a frequent speaker on behalf of both organizations, combining his love for gardening with his concern for the environment. Please come out and learn how you can help the Chesapeake Bay.
