    Name: Clean the Bay Day Presentation
    Date: June 3, 2023
    Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:

    The Chesapeake Bay is a cradle of our nation's infancy. Its richness has nurtured its people for centuries, but it has suffered from assaults on its health that threatens its natural heritage, and the very people that have caused its injury.  It is home to an important but still struggling oyster population, a population that has power to heal this water if it can get a chance to thrive again. This vast body of water is considered the largest estuary in the United States, and many rivers of Virginia serve as its tributaries. In fact, our park is located within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, so what happens here impacts our Chesapeake Bay downstream. 

    Join us for an afternoon of fun as we explore what watersheds are and how we can keep our watershed and the Chesapeake Bay clean. After the program, you'll be able to design and build your own model watershed to watch the water as it flows. This creates a greater understanding of why the conditions of our lands also effect our water.

    Following the watershed model activity, there will be a hike down to the Appomattox River for those interested in participating in a micro-pollution cleanup below High Bridge.
