After decades of conflict over the oyster in Maryland, stakeholders in the oyster resource came to consensus through the science-based, facilitated Consensus Solutions process which was tested in the OysterFutures research program.
This talk summarizes the process, the science, and the stakeholders’ efforts that led to their sweeping and meaningful package of recommendations for oyster management in the Choptank region.
The Chesapeake Bay and its rivers are the lifeblood of the Eastern Shore. While many easily recognize the natural beauty the Chesapeake Bay country offers, the Horn Point Laboratory is offering “Science After Hours with Horn Point Laboratory,” to make the science of the Chesapeake Bay as accessible as its beauty on October 3 and October 24. The upcoming programs will both be held at the St. Michaels Library, 106 Fremont St., St. Michaels, MD from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. These programs are interactive and questions are encouraged.
