One of our most popular Nature Connections returns: a fun steamed blue crab lecture with dissection! Along with a new feature: The MD Bay-Wise Program.

At 1:15pm / Kathy Baker-Brosh will lead an engaging discussion re “What do you really know about Maryland blue crab anatomy and life history?” Enjoy a presentation about blue crabs, including dissecting a steamed crab to observe the anatomy, life habits, and adaptations. Find out what it is that you’re really eating when you dig into those tasty crustaceans!
Kathy Baker-Brosh is the Research Naturalist at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center in Abingdon, Maryland. She oversees research projects at the Center and runs the BioBlitz, Speaker Series, and Citizen Science Zooplankton Monitoring programs. She holds a PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

FREE ADMISSION BUT TO INSURE WE HAVE ENOUGH CRABS FOR DISSECTION, PLEASE SIGNUP ON OUR MEETUP PAGE: meetup.com/marylandnature/events/237352891/

Ongoing from 1:00-4:00pm (stop in at your convenience; stay as long as you’d like):

How can we keep our water quality healthy for those delicious blue crabs and other Bay dwellers? Most Maryland residents live within a half-mile of a storm drain, stream or river. Most of those waterways eventually drain into the Chesapeake Bay. What we do to maintain our own landscapes can affect the health of our local waterways (drainage ditches, streams, and rivers), the Chesapeake Bay and our environment. We can do our part to take care of our waterways and environment. By changing a few simple landscape practices, you and your family can help keep Maryland communities healthy.

The MD Bay-Wise Program will run fun family-oriented activities:
— An interactive game “Who Polluted the Bay?”
— A watershed model where you can make rain

And more activities and crafts for children!
