CBL's Science for CItizens Seminars

Event Date:  April 5, 2016 - 7:00am - 8:00am Oyster Restoration in Maryland Presented by Dr. Kennedy Paynter Oysters are a “keystone” species in the Chesapeake – they play a key role in the creation of reef habitat and the processing of nutrients and sediment in the water column. Over the last 4 years, the bulk of oyster restoration resources have been focused into one tributary: Harris Creek. Hundreds of millions of baby oysters, called spat-on-shell, have been produced by the UMCES oyster hatchery in Cambridge, MD, and deployed in Harris Creek covering about 350 acres. The exciting results will be discussed in this seminar. Location CBL's Bernie Fowler Lab 142 Williams Street Solomons, MD 20688 United States See map: Google Maps

Actors aren’t the only ones dressing up for the play

When Colonial Players’ Boeing Boeing opened Friday, February 19, all eyes focused on the actors. And they’re the ones who’ll take the bows — or dodge the tomatoes — when the play is over.

Galesville’s Hot Sox field

Stand at home plate, close your eyes, tilt your head just right and you can hear the whoosh of a fast ball, the sharp crack of a wooden bat connecting for a line drive down centerfield and the echoes of cheering fans.

The Perennial Diva Stephanie Cohen talks garden-planning

Bay Weekly    What can we do for living color to hurry winter away? Stephanie Cohen    Think containers. Buy a small shrub that’s too dinky for the garden, put it in a frost-free container you can enjoy and tend near the house. When it outgrows the container, you can put it in the ground. I had a nice little dwarf fir tree that I was afraid deer would eat that sat in a container near my house for five years. Now it’s planted and growing.

Colonial Players presents a laugh-filled farce with Boeing, Boeing

French playwright Marc ­Camoletti’s Boeing Boeing made a successful takeoff overseas in 1962, playing for seven years in London. But on Broadway three years later, it stalled after 23 performances. A movie version with Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis was widely ignored. But a 2008 Broadway revival was a hit, and that version has landed at Colonial Players in Annapolis.
