From freshwater mussels to microplastics, from trees in urban environments to dolphins in the Bay—there's always something new to explore and learn about in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Whether it's a connection between critters and habitat that we weren’t aware of, a research paper that changes our thinking, or an innovative technology or practice that shows promise for promoting cleaner water, CBF experts (and sometimes special guests!) are bringing exciting Bay topics directly to you.
