Photo of the Week: Hanging on to the Last Little Bit of Summer


Recently, my husband and I took our baby daughter down to our neighborhood dock to enjoy the glorious late summer weather and to try our hand at a little crabbing (catch and release!). These two guys held fast to the net even as we tried to release them, which made me think of the above title. 

KadyEverson2As a Maryland native, the ecology and long-term health of the Bay has always been a topic of great interest to me. Blue crabs are an integral part of the Bay, for ecological, cultural, and economic reasons. I applaud CBF's ongoing efforts to help stabilize the blue crab's population through education and advocacy.

I hope some day my daughter will be able to share these same types of moments with her children!
