CBMM Offers ‘Chesapeake Science for Non-Scientists’ November 22

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD is hosting a free educational workshop in cooperation with University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Horn Point Laboratory.

From 10am to 12noon on Tuesday, November 22 at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Small Boat Shed, Horn Point Laboratory will offer a workshop based on their popular “Bay 101” classes. In this introductory session, participants will learn “Chesapeake science for non-scientists,” which includes studying the bay’s unique ecology—from water quality and conditions to flora and fauna. The session will be a great way to build up a general Chesapeake environmental ‘toolkit.’ The workshops will be moved to the Bay History building if weather prohibits use of the Small Boat Shed.

Space is limited, with pre-registration needed. To register or for more information, email Helen Van Fleet at hvanfleet@cbmm.org or call at 410-745-4941. For more information about the museum, visit the waterfront campus in St. Michaels or online at www.cbmm.org .
