The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay launched a new online network to connect scientists, environmental professionals and local citizens working to restore the Bay region’s land and waterways. The Chesapeake Watershed Network is similar to online communities like Facebook and LinkedIn. It includes profiles, groups, blogs and discussion boards that allow members to share ideas and projects with the community. Members can create and join groups related to specific regions, projects, topics and organizations, and use those groups to correspond with others that have similar interests. The network features a community directory so members can find colleagues by state, organization or common interest. Find out more at www.chesapeakenetwork.org.
