Event Date:  April 17, 2018 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm Solomons Island Bay Grasses Presented by Dr. Jeremy Testa In the summer of 2017, Bay grasses appeared in front of CBL on Solomons Island for the first time in over four decades. Often considered a ‘canary in a coal mine’, Bay grasses are often an indicator of improving or degrading water conditions and their appearance off Solomons reflects a recent improvement in Chesapeake Bay water quality. Dr. Jeremy Testa will tell the story of Bay grasses in the Patuxent, and will describe how it plays into a wider picture of change in Chesapeake Bay over the past several decades.

CBL's Science for Citizens

Event Date:  March 27, 2018 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm Septic Detectives: Tracing Septic System Wastewaters in Calvert County Neighborhoods Presented by Dr. Michael Gonsior While there is widespread evidence supporting our understanding of how traditional septic systems transmit nitrogen to groundwater, very little of this work has occurred in Maryland. How much nitrogen is released by septic systems to the stream network and ultimately to the Chesapeake Bay remains a challenging question to answer. Dr. Gonsior will discuss methods for source tracking of pollutants arising from septic systems using innovative modern analytical approaches.
