  • Current restoration research funded by the Chesapeake Bay Trust
  • New BMP tools and research (SW outfall protection, Inlet cleaning, roadside ditches)

  • Expert Panel discussion on future of stream restoration in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

There will also be live webcasts that will be broadcast nationally covering the following topics.
