The goal of the poster session is for individual presenters to share their work in a visual format with conference attendees. Thank you to the 2016 Chesapeake Watershed Forum poster presenters. See a list of all of the posters at the 2016 Forum: Poster Abstract Booklet (.pdf)
Chesapeake Collective continues to develop with an increasing presence at this year’s Forum. The Chesapeake Collective is an intentional effort to create a space for a range of diverse voices and narratives to be expressed, shared, and incorporated into the broader conversation about our common vision for a healthy, flourishing, and resilient watershed. While it certainly does not include all of the multiple voices and stories that make our watershed whole, it does provide a platform and an open invitation to those voices and stories that are often overpowered by the dominant narrative or left out of the conversation around holistic, interdependent watersheds and communities. Chesapeake Collective recognizes and celebrates our watershed-wide diversity as a source of strength and the foundation for the type of social movement it will take to meet our collective restoration goals.

The Forum is a highly social event where peers can network with other groups facing similar challenges, and be inspired to continue the work of preserving and restoring the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. To help facilitate this offsite, we’re expanding our efforts to promote the Forum on social media websites. Make sure to follow along with our Forum developments on Facebook and twitter with the hashtag #ChesForum.
