Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week: Beautiful Swimmers Revisited at Maryland Hall

| June 1, 2016

chesbayRecently the Legislatures of MD, PA and VA designated the second week in June as Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week and urged groups to hold events to re-invigorate public enthusiasm for the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay and our local waters. 

To celebrate this week the Annapolis Environmental Commission, Annapolis Green, Annapolis Community Foundation, Annapolis Conservancy, Spa Creek Conservancy and Back Creek Conservancy, invite you to attend a special Annapolis screening of the recently released film Beautiful Swimmers Revisited.  The film was inspired by the 40 year anniversary of the publishing of William Warners Pulitzer Prize winning book “Beautiful Swimmers: Watermen, Crabs and the Chesapeake Bay” and takes a look at how crabs and watermen are doing today. 

The free screening of this film will be held on Monday, June 6 from 7-8 pm at Maryland Hall’s gymnasium. Filmmakers Sandy Cannon-Brown and Dave Harp will introduce the film, and afterwards the audience will have a chance to ask questions of several people featured in the film including C.J Canby a Pasadena waterman, Ann Swanson, Executive Director of the Chesapeake Bay Commission, and Anson “Tuck” Hines (invited)  Director of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC). 

Several local environmental groups will set up displays in the back of the room to share information about the good works they are doing in our area.
