Reducing Your Footprint While Enjoying the Shore - 6/17/14

The Chesapeake Bay is a playground in the summer, with people using this amazing natural resource for fishing, boating, even simply enjoying a relaxing day on the beach along its shores.

While we’re enjoying ourselves, though, it’s important to leave it as you found it—or even better. Megan Anderson, our visitor programs manager at the National Aquarium, joins us today to discuss the do’s and don’ts of exploring the shore responsibly.

As chief executive officer, John Racanelli leads a team of 600 full and part-time employees and 1,000 volunteers in pursuing the National Aquarium’s mission to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. More than 1.5 million people annually visit the Aquarium’s venue in Baltimore, Maryland, while millions more are touched by the Aquarium’s education programs, outreach activities, social media campaigns and conservation initiatives.
