The Chesapeake Bay and its rivers are the lifeblood of the Eastern Shore, defining the region like no other water body in the world. While many easily recognize the natural beauty Bay country offers, the Horn Point Laboratory is offering “Bay 101 – Science of the Chesapeake for Non-Scientists” designed to make the science of the Chesapeake Bay as accessible as its beauty.
