State of the Bay 2016State of the Bay

Dr. Beth McGee, Senior Scientist, and Capt. John Page Williams, Senior Naturalist, of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, will present the Foundation's 2016 State of the Bay report findings and discuss what actions are still needed to truly "Save the Bay."

The report shows that the Bay has improved as a result of Bay restoration efforts. Underwater grasses have expanded 21 percent. The blue crab population jumped 35 percent. The Bay's native oyster population, a critical species that naturally filters the Bay's water, is rebounding. 

These promising signs of Bay recovery show what is possible if we keep moving forward. However, there is still much more to do.
