Chesapeake Bay Week

April 17th-23rd, 2022

Immerse yourself in the history, science and culture of our nation’s largest estuary as part of Maryland Public Television’s 18th annual Chesapeake Bay Week.

On Monday, April 18th at 8pm, explore the ancient art of the waterfowl hunt and the fine art it has inspired. Chesapeake Decoys: The Nature of Waterfowl Art takes viewers to the Chesapeake marshlands, where hunters share in an age-old tradition, and to the Easton Waterfowl Festival where intricate decoys carved from blocks of wood fetch generous sums from enthusiastic collectors.  

Experts, scientists and policy makers converge on Thursday, April 21st at 9pm for The Chesapeake Bay Summit 2022for a compelling discussion on the health of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, led by host Frank Sesno.
