The Chesapeake Bay provides the ecological, cultural and historic foundation of our region. To understand the bay, its seasonal narration, complex history and stewardship needs each of us should be grounded in this place. For over 150 years, our stewardship of the bay region has been disrespectful to the complex natural systems. Water quality, indigenous species, and even people living around the bay have suffered from the impacts of mistreatment. With increased public awareness, public policy has slowly changed, and some progress has been made. Join Dr. Tom Wood on this experiential learning weekend to explore this national treasure.
Late summer is a great time to find a variety of butterflies in our region. Join Larry Meade for a workshop in the field where we will find and learn how to identify various butterflies. We will also learn about their host plants and migration patterns. While butterflies will be the main focus of our trip, we will also pay attention to birds, dragonflies, reptiles and whatever else we find interesting.
