MONTHLY MEETING PROGRAM — DOLPHIN WATCH: DOLPHINS IN THE CHESAPEAKE BAY

September 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

HELEN BAILEY, Research Associate Professor, Chesapeake Biological Laboratory

Little is known about how often dolphins come into the Chesapeake Bay, how long they spend there, what areas they are using and why. Dr. Bailey and her team have been frequently detecting dolphin calls in the Bay and citizen scientists have reported hundreds of dolphin sightings on Dr. Bailey’s Chesapeake Dolphin Watch mobile apps and website. Dr. Bailey will present what she has learned about the Bay’s dolphins so far, describe upgrades to the sighting app, and explain how you can participate in this research effort. Auditorium is located in the Community Center. Note signs for event parking. Light refreshments and mingling start at 7 p.m. Public invited. Inquiries to Lynne Wheeler, somdaudubon@yahoo.com  or 301-751-8097 (prefer text).
