2021 Chesapeake Watershed Forum Poster Submissions Now Open!

The Chesapeake Watershed Poster Session is back! 

The goal of the poster session is to provide the opportunity for individual presenters to share their work and/or research findings in a visual format with conference attendees.

If you are selected to present a poster, you will:

  • Produce a PDF copy of your poster to upload to the our virtual conference platform, Whova.
  • Record an optional short video to be presented alongside your virtual poster.
  • Be available from 12 – 1 pm on Thursday, November 4th for a virtual poster session to answer questions in the chat on Whova. The posters will be accessible to attendees for all three days of the Forum.

This year’s Forum theme, “The Future is Now: Getting to (and Moving Beyond) 2025” was chosen because 2025 is quickly approaching and marks a historic milestone for the Chesapeake Bay watershed restoration movement. We are especially interested in engaging posters that highlight innovative partnerships, leading to success.
