June 12, 2012

Dunn and Maounis described their collaborative efforts to pull together public, private, nonprofit, and academic organizations throughout the Chesapeake watershed to achieve lasting conservation outcomes related to recreation, clean water, wildlife habitat conservation, and sustainable resource utilization. Both have worked tirelessly in recent years to establish the Captain John Smith Chesapeake Historic Trail that travels across expansive sections of both water and land. Their work is at the core of an emerging landscape-scale conservation initiative that aims to do no less than restore the health and productivity of America's largest estuary - a resource of historic significance associated with ancient native cultures as well as some of the very earliest English settlements in the New World.

The session was moderated by James Levitt, Director of the Program on Conservation Innovation at the Harvard Forest, Harvard University, and a Fellow at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
