Economic Benefits of a Healthy Chesapeake Bay Presented by Dr. Lisa Wainger

Event Date: 
September 26, 2017 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Join us at the oldest state-supported marine lab on the East Coast to learn about innovative research being pioneered by CBL scientists. Our faculty and graduate students are developing new approaches to solving the environmental management problems facing Calvert County, our nation, and the world. Each talk will be presented by an UMCES scientist and will inform the public about a featured research effort. In this week’s seminar:

A healthy environment supports economic vitality in many ways. Using the Chesapeake Bay as an example, Dr. Lisa Wainger will discuss how economists connect environmental quality to economic gains and use that information to help design balanced environmental policies. She will describe how many of our iconic industries and communities could actually financially benefit from a healthy Chesapeake Bay.
