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.

June Lecture:
Beautiful but mysterious, cownose rays have inspired both wonder and controversy in Chesapeake Bay. For the last four years, ecologist Matt Ogburn and SERC’s Fish & Invertebrate Ecology Lab have tracked ray migrations along the Atlantic Coast as part of the Smithsonian's Movement of Life Initiative. Discover the biology of these often-misunderstood creatures, how scientists are using sound to follow their journeys, and how new discoveries might inform management of ray fisheries.
