BEC Learning Series:The Bounty of the Bay: A Dive Into Our Fisheries

Tuesday, June 9, 2020
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM


While unprecedented social restrictions make CBF's bimonthly Brock Environmental Center Learning Series impossible to do at the Brock Center for the time being, the issues remain as important as ever.  So we are moving this popular series online, increasing the number of available seats—and making the program monthly!  

This month, we will explore the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay from shellfish aquaculture to the iconic blue crab fishery. Guests will include watermen who participate in the Chesapeake Bay seafood fisheries, plus presentations by CBF staff including Audrey Swanenberg who coordinates the Chesapeake Oyster Alliance, and Chris Moore who manages fisheries policy in Virginia.

Our speakers for this program will be: 

  • Tommy Leggett (Chessie Seafood)
  • Gardner Douglass (aka the ‘Oyster Ninja’ nationally ranked shucker)
  • Chris Moore (CBF)
  • Audrey Swanenberg (CBF)

We look forward to sharing this critical component of saving the Bay and answering your questions!

We're sorry, the deadline for buying tickets for this event has passed.
