Bringing the Stories of the Bay to Your Laptop

Wypr_logoThe sounds and stories of the Bay are now as close as your laptop. CBF has entered into a partnership with WYPR 88.1 FM, the public radio station in Baltimore, to produce a series of monthly podcasts called Natural Maryland. The podcasts will feature stories that highlight the diversity of the Bay, both biologically and socially.

The first podcast, Nature's Bounty, has been posted on It explores in rich detail the annual drama of the horseshoe crab spawning on the Delaware Bay. For anyone who hasn't been knee-deep in mating horseshoe crabs on a starry night in the shallow waters off Pickering Beach, Delaware, download the experience from WYPR. Jonas said her next podcast will be a trip with CBF naturalist John Page Williams to witness a stretch of the Severn River that captures both the hope and the tragedy of the whole Bay. Stay tuned, er, connected.
