Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia has scheduled its next seminar, “Half a Century of Saving the Chesapeake Bay—Lessons Learned”. The free 90-minute seminar will be at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, January 26 in the Lecture Hall of the Eastern Shore Community College, 29300 Lankford Hwy, Melfa, VA 23410.
Tom Horton will describe how when growing up on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, he experienced the best of the Chesapeake. His adult life has been devoted to chronicling the great estuary’s degradation that began in the 1970s, and the major efforts to reverse this that began in the 1980s.
Horton covered the environment for the Baltimore Sun from 1972 through 2006. He continues to write a column for the monthly Bay Journal and teaches environmental studies and nature writing at Salisbury University.
These seminars are occasionally rescheduled or postponed on short notice. Prospective attendees are urged to check the Seminar’s website (www.SciPhi.org) shortly before a scheduled date.
