There are many things that make the Eastern Shore of Maryland such a unique and beautiful place to live, and one of these things is the deep, local connection that our community feels with the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams.

The Bay has been deeply tied to the community, culture, and economy of the Shore for as long as people have called this place home. From the folks who have moved here in recent years to the people who work on the water every day, the Chesapeake Bay is clearly an integral part of culture on Maryland's Eastern Shore. 

This November, CBF is partnering with the Talbot County Free Library to offer an exciting program series that will help participants learn more about the Chesapeake Bay, and what we can do as citizens to help restore its health for the benefit of current and future generations. This program will also celebrate the unique heritage of the Eastern Shore and its connection to this important resource.

Here is a complete list of the programs offered in the series. All are free and open to the public:

  • Bay 101: An Introduction to the State of the Bay, Monday, November 4, 6:30 p.m., Talbot County Free Library, 100 West Dover St., Easton, MD

  • Exploring Bay Country with author Tom Horton, Thursday, November 14, 6:30 p.m., Talbot County Free Library, 100 West Dover St., Easton, MD

We look forward to seeing you in November as we all learn more about the Chesapeake Bay and what we can do to help restore it, and to celebrate what makes life on the Eastern Shore so special.
