I’ve come across a number of amazing sites in my quest to learn more about the history of the Chesapeake’s decline. One I particularly like is the sitemaintained by the Chesapeake Bay Program — the regional partnership that’s led and directed the restoration of the Bay since 1983.
Taks a look at the Chesapeake Bay Program siteand you’ll find a ton of info in a very nice package!
On the Homepage you can scroll through multimedia treatments of the Top Stories where current topics range from a discussion of groundwater to six ways African-American history helped shape the Chesapeake. The Top Story items link to the full story. On the upper-right of the page, you’ll find links to The Bay in the News items and my favorite — ways to Stay Connected. This is the place to read The Bay Blog and to sign up for the Bay News, as well as Chesapeake Currents – the monthly enewsletter.
Further down on the homepage you’ll find BayTube with videos and interviews. Right now there’s a Chesapeake Stories interview with Arthur Tuers that you’ve got to see! You’ll also find sections for How You Can Help, Spotlight On…, and Featured items.
Other pages on the site cover the Bay in general, pressures on the bay, restoration of the bay, info on the partnership… Excellent background and detail information.
Take the time to check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
