High Tide in Dorchester - Trailer
 
02:33
High Tide in Dorchester aims to create a conversation about climate change, along with related impacts of sea level rise and erosion, and leverage that conversation into action. Locations around the country already have growing concerns for the future that increasingly faces coastal areas worldwide, including Dorchester County, MD. This low-lying county on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay is the fourth largest of Maryland’s 23 counties by land area, but it is destined to drop to the 14th largest by 2100 - or sooner - as waters rise and erosion worsens. Dorchester is fast becoming the coal miner’s canary; ground zero for the Chesapeake Region. High Tide in Dorchester is a wake-up call: It’s time for a retreat from the shoreline, of which the Chesapeake estuary has some 11,000 miles. Historically, millions of people have sought to live as close to that shoreline as possible, but few communities are doing adequate planning to meet the imminent challenges of restraint, retreat and adaptation to living on the edges of a rising tide. Rising seas also threaten many species of waterfowl and other birds that nest in these extensive wetlands. It is imperative that we give our wetlands space to migrate upland as they are flooded in the lowlands. The film also looks closely at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, where scientists and managers are already dealing with the impacts of the rising tide.

America's Wildest Places - Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, Maryland
 
19:56
Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, located on Maryland's scenic Eastern Shore, consists of over 25,000 acres of freshwater impoundments, brackish tidal wetlands, open fields, and mixed evergreen and deciduous forests and is home to the largest remaining natural population of endangered Delmarva fox squirrels and to the largest breeding population of American bald eagles on the East Coast, north of Florida. The Refuge has been referred to as the "Everglades of the North," and has been called one of the "Last Great Places" by the Nature Conservancy. Blackwater Refuge contains one-third of Maryland's tidal wetlands, which makes it an ecologically important area within the state. It is recognized as a "Wetland of International Importance" by the Ramsar Convention and was named a priority wetland in the North American Waterfowl Management Plan. In addition, Blackwater Refuge has been designated as an Internationally Important Bird Area. The Refuge is fed by the Blackwater River and the Little Blackwater River, both of which flow through three local swamps: the Gum, the Kentuck, and the Moneystump. Due to its location, Blackwater Refuge is an important stop along the Atlantic Flyway (a migratory bird route that stretches from Canada to Florida). Blackwater Refuge is an estuarine marshland ecosystem and is known for its brackish tidal marshes and majestic loblolly pine trees (the loblolly is a southern pine that is accustomed to coastal conditions and reaches its northern limit just north of Blackwater). The drier marsh meadows at Blackwater are dominated by saltmeadow cordgrass and saltmarsh cordgrass, while the wetter marshes are frequented by Olney three-square. In addition to marshland, Blackwater Refuge also holds smaller areas of mixed evergreen and deciduous forests, managed freshwater impoundments, and managed cropland. The freshwater impoundments and cropland are carefully maintained by Refuge management and help increase the diversity of food and wildlife at the Refuge. Living in the marshlands and forests of Blackwater are many forms of unique and interesting wildlife. In addition to over 250 species of birds, Blackwater also boasts 35 species of reptiles and amphibians, tens of thousands of geese and ducks during the peak migration periods, and many resident mammals including whitetail deer, sika deer (an Asian elk), foxes, otters, and raccoons. In addition, Blackwater Refuge is frequented by three recovering species: the endangered Delmarva fox squirrel, the American bald eagle, and the migrant peregrine falcon. The bald eagle population is a source of great pride at Blackwater Refuge and is often the top attraction for many visitors. Blackwater Refuge is part of the Chesapeake Marshlands National Wildlife Refuge Complex, which is comprised of Martin NWR, Eastern Neck NWR, Susquehanna NWR and the Barren Island, Watts Island, Garrett Island, Bishops Head, and Spring Island Divisions. Blackwater Refuge has also played a role in Native American and African American historical happenings. Nause and Waiwash were the names of two Nanticoke Indian ancestral villages that were based in Dorchester County, Maryland -- the home of Blackwater Refuge. The Nause-Waiwash Indian tribe now consists of over 250 descendants of the original Nanticoke Indians from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The tribe has restored their Longhouse at the corner of Maple Dam Road and Greenbriar Road, half a mile from the Refuge, which is adjacent to Fishing Bay Wildlife Management Area. In Fishing Bay are Guinea and Chance islands, the ancestral home of the Nause-Waiwash Indian tribe who still make annual visits there. Also, the region is steeped in Civil War and civil rights history; nearby Bucktown is the birthplace of Harriet Tubman, one of the conductors of the Underground Railroad. Tubman took many slaves to freedom in Pennsylvania, New York and Ontario, Canada. Blackwater Refuge is believed to be a former hiding place for escaped slaves who were travelling on the Underground Railroad. VISIT BLACKWATER A daily permit is required for all tourists and visitors to the Wildlife Drive unless they possess an annual pass, lifetime passport, or current Duck Stamp. The Wildlife Drive and associated trails are open from dawn to dusk every day. Visitors can drive, bike, or walk the length of the Wildlife Drive, which is approximately four miles in length.

We Did That [Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays Trust Fund]
 
04:34
Leaders throughout Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay watershed are at a critical point in efforts to protect and restore one of the most remarkable and productive natural resources in the world. Background and Objective In 2007, State leaders in Maryland took a bold step in their efforts to restore the Chesapeake Bay with the creation of the Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays Trust Fund (Trust Fund). The Trust Fund allows Maryland to accelerate Bay restoration by focusing limited financial resources on the most effective non-point source pollution control projects. Dollars for the Trust Fund are generated through motor fuel tax and rental car tax in Maryland. It is anticipated that when fully-funded, the Trust Fund will generate $50M annually. Trust Fund to Date The Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays Trust Fund is one of the region's most important funding tools targeting water quality, and watershed restoration and protection projects to reduce non point source pollution. The goal of BayStat each year is to identify projects and develop a work plan designed to maximize the Trust Fund's environmental return on investment, thereby serving as a model of restoration financing efficiency and effectiveness critical to achieving the goals under EPA's Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) requirements within the State's Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP). These investments also create green jobs, and provide habitat, mitigate flood hazards, and prevent soil erosion. Between Fiscal Year 2009-12 the State has provided $63.1 Million dollars generated through motor fuel excise tax and rental car tax in Maryland to accelerate Bay restoration by focusing limited financial resources on the most effective non-point source pollution control projects. FY 2009-12 Highlights include: From Fiscal Year 2009-12, the Trust Fund prevented 3.56 million lbs of Nitrogen, 335,000 lbs of Phosphorus, and 478 tons of Sediment from annually harming the Bay. From Fiscal Year 2009-12, the Trust Fund provided $3.48M to support 16 Soil Conservation District positions critical to the implementation of agricultural best management practices as identified in the State and local WIPs. From Fiscal Year 2009-12, the Trust Fund leveraged $86M of Federal, State and Local funds to support Chesapeake Bay clean up efforts.

Kayak-Fishing Snakehead in Mattawoman Creek - July 16, 2011
 
05:35
"Don't judge a book by its cover" On July 16, 2011, I made the second snakehead fishing in Mattawoman Creek, MD. This time I was well prepared to catch snakehead. I knew the target area and two good lures. And I stuck with my game plan. I caught my first and second snakehead. But I was not prepared to handle snakehead on a sit-on-top kayak. Snakehead was hard to contain. I felt I was handling a big fat eel. They sprang out of the net into the water. I scoop them with the net again. Once the hooks came off, it was a war. I had hard time to contain them because the fish was big and slimy and the Hobie pedal was in the way. It took me 15 minutes for the first one to have a good grip on it. Next time I am not bring the Hobie because 1) the fins of pedal drive caught a ton of weed (I am paddling in 6" -- 1.5' of water) and 2) the pedal drive was in the way when handling the snakehead. Also I will bring a towel to have a good grip on snakehead. Snakeheads aren't pretty fish. But, they are tasty (firm white meat) as many anglers said.

Vlog 001 | Snapchat along Big Hunting Creek near Camp David
 
05:10
Vlog 001 | Snapchat along Big Hunting Creek near Camp David Recorded 05/14/2016 @10AM with Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Perhaps no other Maryland trout stream has as much history as Big Hunting Creek. Big Hunting Creek was one of the first streams in the State to be stocked with trout. It was also the first stream to be designated a fly-fishing-only stream and in the early 1960's became the State's first Catch-and-Return Trout Fishing Area. Big Hunting Creek has been popular with angling Presidents, noted authors, fly fishing enthusiasts and park visitors who enjoy viewing trout in a natural mountain setting. A streamside memorial to the late Joe Brooks can be found across from the National Park Visitor Center. The entire stream within the State and Federal parks was declared a Catch-and-Return, Fly-Fishing-Only Trout Fishing Area in 1974. All stocking upstream of Cunningham Falls Reservoir was discontinued in 1975 to encourage the development of the wild trout populations. Initial efforts to manage the wild trout populations within the tailwater began in 1977 with the reduction of the hatchery trout allocation to fifteen-hundred annually and the discontinuance of all brown trout stocking. A comprehensive fishery management plan was developed during 1993, a cooperative effort between the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Cunningham Falls State Park, Catoctin Mountain National Park and various publics who share an interest in the welfare of Big Hunting Creek. Currently, the annual stocking allocation is a total of one-thousand brook and rainbow trout. Physical/ Habitat Description - In spite of its name, Big Hunting Creek can be characterized as a small, freestone stream. Just ten feet wide in the headwaters above Cunningham Falls and seventeen to twenty feet in width at the lower park boundary, anglers will find varied habitat shaded by large hemlocks and hardwoods throughout. Shallow riffles, small plunge pools, long runs and ample pocket-water with many large boulders continually challenge fly casters. The upper one-third of the tailwater has a gentle gradient with slow runs and a meandering channel. Further downstream the gradient increases with an abundance of plunge pools and pocket water. A local group, Friends of Big Hunting Creek, has installed several rock and log structures aimed at improving holding water for trout during low flows. Some anglers, however, argue the controversial artificial structures detract from the natural surroundings. Whatever your preference in small stream habitat or whether you prefer wild or stocked trout, Big Hunting Creek has something to offer most fly fishermen.

Waters of Paradise - Adapting to Climate Change in the Maldives (short)
 
06:13
The Maldives is one of the wonders of the world. Located in the Indian Ocean and made of 1192 coral islands, it is also the world’s lowest lying country. The highest natural point is just 2.4 meters above sea level. Today, one of the main problems for Maldivians is water. And it is likely to get worse with Climate Change. While Northern islands face drinking water shortages during the dry season, from April to May, most Southern islands face a different problem: flooding.The United Nations Development Programme with support from the Green Climate Fund is supporting the Government of the Maldives, to ensure that most vulnerable islands have year-round access to potable water and that they can cope with floods on their own. Nearly half of its population lives in Male, the capital of the islands, in less than 1.4 square kilometers. The rest is spread over 186 small, scattered islands. Maldivians have lived for centuries from coconuts and fishing. There are no rivers or streams on any of the islands. Except for Malé and a handful of other islands, most islands rely on rain for drinking water. Islands affected by floods and shortages of potable water receive relief from the capital island Malé. Transportation costs are high with the Maldives scattered geography. This makes emergency relief very expensive for a government already struggling economically. Climate change is expected to bring stronger storms, and longer periods without rainfall. A rise in the ocean’s temperature and acidification has had devastating effects on coral reefs, affecting tourism and fisheries, both critical to the livelihoods of most Maldivians. Damaged reefs also function less effectively as a first line of defense against sea swells and flooding. Until the nineties, Maldivians used groundwater for drinking. But over the past decade, the groundwater of most islands got contaminated. The freshwater lenses of most islands was badly affected by the Tsunami of 2004 and poorly planned urbanization. As a result, today, rainwater, together with water produced using desalination and expensive bottled water are the only potable water options. In the past ten years, the National Disasters Management Center in Malé had to send emergency shipments of water to about half of the 186 inhabited islands during the dry season. An expensive solution that sometimes can take up to two weeks to arrive. Most households have one tank of 2500L and fill it by collecting rain from their roofs. Bigger families might even have 2 or 3 tanks, since one is not enough for them to make it through the dry season. When water supply ends, households cope by borrowing from neighbors, by buying bottled water or by receiving water relief from Male. Director: Marta Baraibar

Aaron ADAMS 1/24/18 Linking Fish, Habitats, and Conservation
 
48:42
About the Lecture The scales at which recreational fisheries are managed do not match the ecology of the species that comprise the fisheries. Moreover, most fisheries management plans do not include information about habitat requirements for target species. These disconnects poses challenges to effective fisheries conservation. This presentation will use examples from recent research to highlight these disconnects. For example, management of the recreational fishery for snook (Centropomus undecimalis) in Florida, focus on stock assessments, discard mortality estimates, and catch and release education. Missing are management actions that consider the habitat mosaic required for snook ontogenetic connectivity. Additional focal species include bonefish (Albula vulpes), tarpon (Megalops atlanticus), and permit (Trachinotus falcatus). Incorporating the ecological-scale factors into conservation strategies for coastal recreational fisheries is essential to ensuring sustainable fisheries, especially given the increasingly critical degradation and loss of coastal habitats. About the Speaker Dr. Aaron Adams is a Senior Scientist at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute and the Director of Science and Conservation for Bonefish & Tarpon Trust. He received a bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s College in Maryland, a Master’s degree from the College of William and Mary, and a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts Boston, and holds a Coast Guard Captain’s License. He has lived, conducted research, and fished on both coasts of the US and throughout the Caribbean. His scientific focus is on conducting applied research with conservation implications, with a particular interest in fish habitat ecology. In addition, he is also an avid angler, and has authored three books, contributed to five books, and written numerous magazine articles that translate fish science into layman’s terms.

Management strategy evaluation for ecosystem-based fisheries management
 
01:01:35
Title: Management strategy evaluation for ecosystem-based fisheries management: defining objectives and exploring tradeoffs using transdisciplinary approaches Speaker: Kristin Marshall, Research Fish Biologist, National Marine Fisheries Service, Northwest Fisheries Science Center Abstract: Management strategy evaluation (MSE) is a useful approach to better understand and illustrate objectives and tradeoffs inherent to ecosystem-based fisheries management. MSEs can support decision-making and improve understanding of potential consequences of fisheries management for humans and ecosystems. In this talk, I describe the MSE approach and use examples from Pacific herring and Pacific hake fisheries to show how a transdisciplinary research process advances understanding of sustainability in each social-ecological fishery system. About the Speaker: Kristin Marshall is an ecologist and the Management Strategy Evaluation Coordinator at the Northwest Fishery Science Center. Her research focuses on understanding how species and ecosystems respond to climate change and developing and applying transdisciplinary approaches to support ecosystem-based fisheries management. Kristin earned a PhD from Colorado State University, a MS from University of Washington, a BA from Boston University, and worked as a post-doc at the NWFSC and the UW prior to joining NOAA as a federal employee in 2017.

Cute Angolan Colobus Baby!
 
01:06
The Chicago Zoological Society is happy to announce the birth of an Angolan colobus monkey at Brookfield Zoo on March 9. This is the first birth of this species of colobus born at the zoo. Both mom and her baby may be seen daily in the zoo's Tropic World/Africa exhibit. Infants are born completely white, which is great camouflage as they blend in with their mom's long white hair. Zoogoers will notice the young monkey begin to change color from white to gray to black, reaching adult coloration at approximately 3 months of age. Guests may also notice the infant's mom, Olivia, 5, sharing maternal care with the other females in the group—Chaka, 4, and Tina, 17, who is mother to both females—as well as Sasha, 12, the sire. This is because Angolan colobus allo-parent, meaning that other members in the group take turns carrying the baby, who goes back to mom when she wants it back or when the baby needs to nurse. All four adults arrived at Brookfield Zoo in August 2012 from Columbus Zoo, Ohio, on a breeding loan that was recommended by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Angolan Colobus Species Survival Plan (SSP). An SSP is a cooperative population management and conservation program for select species in accredited AZA zoos and aquariums. Each SSP manages the breeding of a species to maintain a healthy and self-sustaining population that is both genetically diverse and demographically stable.

Amazing Nature | Big Hunting Creek | Catoctin Mountain Park
 
09:38
Here's an amazing short video of water cascading down the rocks along Big Hunting Creek in Catoctin Mountain Park near Thurmont, MD. Recorded with Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Saturday May 14, 2016 at 10AM. No other Maryland trout stream has as much history as Big Hunting Creek. Big Hunting Creek was one of the first streams in the State to be stocked with trout. It was also the first stream to be designated a fly-fishing-only stream and in the early 1960's became the State's first Catch-and-Return Trout Fishing Area. Big Hunting Creek has been popular with angling Presidents, noted authors, fly fishing enthusiasts and park visitors who enjoy viewing trout in a natural mountain setting. A streamside memorial to the late Joe Brooks can be found across from the National Park Visitor Center. The entire stream within the State and Federal parks was declared a Catch-and-Return, Fly-Fishing-Only Trout Fishing Area in 1974. All stocking upstream of Cunningham Falls Reservoir was discontinued in 1975 to encourage the development of the wild trout populations. Initial efforts to manage the wild trout populations within the tailwater began in 1977 with the reduction of the hatchery trout allocation to fifteen-hundred annually and the discontinuance of all brown trout stocking. A comprehensive fishery management plan was developed during 1993, a cooperative effort between the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Cunningham Falls State Park, Catoctin Mountain National Park and various publics who share an interest in the welfare of Big Hunting Creek. Currently, the annual stocking allocation is a total of one-thousand brook and rainbow trout. Physical/ Habitat Description - In spite of its name, Big Hunting Creek can be characterized as a small, freestone stream. Just ten feet wide in the headwaters above Cunningham Falls and seventeen to twenty feet in width at the lower park boundary, anglers will find varied habitat shaded by large hemlocks and hardwoods throughout. Shallow riffles, small plunge pools, long runs and ample pocket-water with many large boulders continually challenge fly casters. The upper one-third of the tailwater has a gentle gradient with slow runs and a meandering channel. Further downstream the gradient increases with an abundance of plunge pools and pocket water. A local group, Friends of Big Hunting Creek, has installed several rock and log structures aimed at improving holding water for trout during low flows. Some anglers, however, argue the controversial artificial structures detract from the natural surroundings. Whatever your preference in small stream habitat or whether you prefer wild or stocked trout, Big Hunting Creek has something to offer most fly fishermen.

Philanthropy Report: Keeping the Mainstay Forever with Damon Bradley
 
07:03
If there was a scorecard that judged Kent County charitable organizations on management, mission, long-term strategic planning, as well as the commitment levels of board members and staff, there would be little doubt that the Mainstay in Rock Hall would be in the top three in the region. For two decades, the Mainstay has done almost everything the "right" way since director and founder Tom McHugh started the music venue after retiring from Vassar College. With a perfect balance of the right kind of performers, physical space, volunteers, and simply a lot of downright fun, McHugh and the board of directors of Mainstay have made this Rock Hall organization one of the most respected on the Eastern Shore. That "poster boy" status was recently challenged with the announcement that McHugh would make good on his repeated threats to retire this year. And, as a result, The Mainstay board had to think twice about keeping its doors open without the charismatic Irishman at the helm. To the credit of the directors and a small handful of Mainstay's closest friends, after a long study phase, a decision was made to continue, Tom or no Tom, for the love of music and the Rock Hall community. But what was the cost of that decision? It turned out to be about a quarter of a million dollars. That was the extra revenue needed to keep Mainstay going over the next five years, pay a new executive director, and buy enough time for the organization to modify their business model to expand programming to attract new audiences and revenue streams as musical tastes changes in American society. One of the key players in guiding the Mainstay into the "Tom-less" era has been Damon Bradley. No stranger to strategic plans and fundraising, given his highly respected role as headmaster of Washington's prestigious Landon School for fourteen years, Bradley spoke to the Spy about keeping the Mainstay forever with its first-ever capital campaign.

Speakers for this webinar will be from the U.S. EPA-Chesapeake Bay Office, the State of Maryland Department of Planning, and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. Cleanup efforts have been underway since the early 1980s through a partnership between the states of Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. EPA. Within the last two years, to meet legal requirements, the EPA has taken a stronger role in directing cleanup efforts with equal but full emphasis on non-point sources, point sources, and air quality. State strategies have been submitted to EPA and the states are working with local governmental agencies including regional planning agencies in developing local watershed plans to meet EPA requirements. The Regional and Intergovernmental Planning Division will host this session. A further webinar on this Chesapeake Bay Restoration Program with speakers from Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the EPA will be held in late July.
