Maryland Public Television invites you to help foster public awareness and education about the environment and conservation by participating in Bay Week 2022.  This special week of programming spans the history, culture, science and current challenges of the bay with programs ranging from cooking and arts to environmental problems and politics.  Your viewers will be pleasantly surprised by how our nation’s waterways touch our lives and connect us with each other.

New offerings for 2022 include: Chesapeake Decoys: The Nature of Waterfowl Art - explores waterfowl carving as it exists today as both fine art and big business. KENT COUNTY’S STORIED LANDSCAPE  Place: Past and Present - tells the stories of the land and the people whose lives depend upon the cultivated generosity of soil and sea. The Chesapeake Bay Summit 2022: The Chesapeake Bay Watershed - this year’s discussion focuses on the states that make up the watershed and how a raindrop that falls in each of these areas eventually makes its way to the Chesapeake Bay. Oysterfest - if you’re intrigued by all things bivalve, then enjoy this compilation of three short films, each exploring a different aspect of the oyster’s place in the ecosystem, history and culture. Water’s Way: Thinking Like a Watershed - explores the development, agriculture and channelization of streams and creeks and their impact on the natural processes that once worked to control runoff and filter the water.

Suggested Scheduling: On Friday April 22, 2022, the nation will celebrate Earth Day, so it is the perfect time to have your viewers participate in this important event. All the programs offered have rights extended to the end of this year, so MPT encourages your station to either participate during the same week (April 17 – 23, 2021) or create your own themed week when your schedule permits.

To Acquire Programs: The full programs will be distributed to stations in late March/early April 2022. A detailed schedule with the days and times of program availability will follow.
