2022 Chesapeake Watershed Forum

November 4 - November 6

NATURE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD: CONNECTING COMMUNITIES TO THE OUTDOORS

Through this year’s theme, we intend to showcase the local benefits of the broader Chesapeake Bay watershed restoration movement. We will elevate tools, examples, and ideas on how to bridge the gap between local communities and their watersheds. In particular, we will highlight connections made to nature and the outdoors through recreation, public access, public health, stewardship, environmental education, advocacy and policy. We also will consider the ways historic inequities and biases have prohibited certain populations, notably low income and communities of color, from accessing and connecting with their local waterways. We look to elevate these issues and demonstrate how to address them in a meaningful and lasting way
