July 14, 2016 – Segment 2
We have two segments on the December 2018 Federal government deadline for reducing runoff in the Chesapeake Bay, and steps that are being taken to meet it. We talk with: Scott Dance, who writes about the environment and the weather for The Baltimore Sun; and Carl Simon, Director of Programs at Blue Water Baltimore.
We close the show at 11:30
with a feature on Waterwomen of the Chesapeake Bay.
With: Lydia Woolever
, Associate Editor at Baltimore Magazine
who wrote the July feature story “Waterwomen
,” an in-depth look at a few fearless females who work the Chesapeake Bay themselves and, like their male counterparts, help keep the seafood industry alive; Jill Buck
, waterwoman who has been on the water for six years after retiring from a career in childcare and who works as both a traditional waterwoman as well as a practicer of aquaculture; and Rachel Dean
, a traditional waterwoman from Solomons Island and part-time high-school English teacher who is involved in waterman’s advocacy, two different fisheries commissions within the Maryland DNR, and Chesapeake Bay heritage tours.
