On June 12, 2012, we held an online Webinar with Joel Dunn, Executive Director of the Chesapeake Conservancy, and John Maounis, National Park Service Superintendent of the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historical Trail.
Dunn and Maounis described their collaborative efforts to pull together public, private, nonprofit, and academic organizations throughout the Chesapeake watershed to achieve lasting conservation outcomes related to recreation, clean water, wildlife habitat conservation, and sustainable resource utilization. Their work is at the core of an emerging landscape-scale conservation initiative that aims to do no less than restore the health and productivity of America’s largest estuary — a resource of historic significance associated with ancient native cultures as well as some of the very earliest English settlements in the New World.
