Webinar: The Bay Act: Current, Past, and Future

February 16 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

A continuation of our popular Brock Environmental Center Learning Series in a webinar format, adapting to address a critical issue in these challenging times.

The Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act, enacted more than 30 years ago, was designed to curb nutrient and sediment pollution to the Chesapeake Bay through sound land-use practices that minimize the disturbance and development of environmentally-sensitive coastal areas.

Proposed new regulations under the Bay Act are being fleshed out right now to encourage and promote the preservation and planting of trees, as well as adaptation to sea-level rise and climate change impacts.

Join our panel of experts to learn more about the history and future of the Bay Act, and how you can support further shoreline protection and improved water quality.

Speakers include:

  • Jay Ford, Virginia Policy and Grassroots Advisor, Chesapeake Bay Foundation
  • The Honorable W. Tayloe Murphy, Jr., Former Virginia House of Delegates member and Virginia Secretary of Natural Resources
  • Skip Stiles, Executive Director, Wetlands Watch
  • Justin Williams, Director, Office of Watersheds & Local Government Assistance Programs, Virginia Department of Environmental Quality
  • Joe Wood, Virginia Senior Scientist, Chesapeake Bay Foundation
