Science for Citizens: Patuxent River Research Cruises: Building on a scientific & educational legacy - Cancelled

April 7, 2020 7:00pm to 8:00pm iCal Google Calendar

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.  ​ 

As natural and human pressures in the Chesapeake Bay region evolve, understanding how these conditions affect the Bay’s ecosystems is critical for proper management of this unique estuary. In 2018, CBL developed the Patuxent River Research Cruise Program (PAX) to build our scientific knowledge of the Patuxent River ecosystem while helping to train the next generation of coastal scientists. This seminar will highlight the history of estuarine research and education on the Patuxent, describe how PAX builds on this legacy, and present preliminary findings generated since the start of the program.

Where: CBL’s Bernie Fowler Lab, 142 Williams Street, Solomons, MD 20688. View a campus map.
Cost: Free. No pre-registration necessary. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Who: Members of the general public. No scientific background needed; everyone is welcome!
Why: Learn something new and interesting while celebrating science on scenic Solomons Island

This seminar is presented as a part of the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory’s Science for Citizens Seminar Series.  These public seminars invite the community to discover how our scientists are developing new approaches to solving the environmental challenges facing Southern Maryland, our nation, and the world.
