John Seidel to Speak on Sustainable Bay Future on Oct. 3


John Seidel, Director of Washington College’s Center for Environment & Society (CES), will discuss how Eastern Shore residents can play a pivotal role in preserving the Chesapeake Bay watershed at a presentation Oct. 3 at the Talbot Country Club in Easton.

Seidel will present “Living Landscapes: Linking Land, Water, and People for a Sustainable Future” at the event, which is open to the public for a fee of $15 and includes a reception that begins at 5:30 p.m.

As director of the CES, Seidel is at the forefront of the College’s efforts to bring the human and societal elements together within the environmental equation. Balancing natural systems and human communities so that each can thrive is an overarching goal to achieving a healthy Chesapeake Bay and Bay watershed. From restoring habitat that brought back the region’s quail, to operating the only bird-banding station on the upper Eastern Shore that provides critical long-term data on bird migration, to providing students myriad opportunities to study the complex ecology and culture of the Bay, CES is helping to solve sustainability challenges by integrating environmental issues and social values.

Seidel is also an associate professor of anthropology and environmental studies and conducts the College’s summer program in archaeology.

Washington College and Talbot Country Club are co-sponsoring the presentation at 6142 Country Club Drive, Easton, Maryland. The $15 fee pays for the reception and admittance, and is payable by credit card or check to Talbot Country Club at the event. Washington College is not accepting payments. Please RSVP by Sept. 28 to Victoria Corcoran at 410-778-7805 or
