Event Details

Get inspired by stories of Bay Optimism this year! Learn what's working in conservation in the Chesapeake and around the world, and how we can do more of it. SERC's monthly Bay Optimism lectures run every third Tuesday of the month, March through October. Lectures start at 7pm; light refreshments at 6:30. Free and open to all—curiosity is the only prerequisite.

March Lecture:
How does an island in Chesapeake Bay go from 1,140 acres to less than 5 acres, and then rebound to 1,140 acres again? In this talk, environmental specialist Rachael Gilde will describe how the placement of dredged material is restoring a once-disappearing island to a unique and thriving wildlife habitat within Chesapeake Bay. Come and learn more about the process and the environmental benefits of the Poplar Island project.
