"Can Food Production and a Clean Chesapeake Bay Coexist?"

Thu, 19 Nov, 2015 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The panel will feature farmers, environmentalists, and local residents talking about the challenges and success in the effort to achieve a healthier Chesapeake Bay, while continuing to produce food.

Kim Coble, CBF Environmental Protection and Restoration Vice President, Miles-Wye Riverkeeper Jeff Horstman, and U.S. Geological Survey hydrologist Judy Denver will talk about recent scientific studies of nutrient movement through the groundwater.
