Theme: Don't Suck. Sip Responsibly

Plan to join us to celebrate the 2018 Annapolis Restaurant Week (February 25 - March 3) and kickoff our campaign to reduce plastic pollution in our waterways: "Don't Suck. #SipResponsibly."

It seems like a small thing but the numbers add up. We're joining a global movement to change habits and say no to the plastic straws and, if you really need one, embrace paper paper straws. Come learn what you can do to keep plastic pollution out of our Bay and oceans with just a simple "no." Let's show the world that Annapolis doesn't suck!

There will be spirited conversation, appetizers, and a cash bar where there will be NO plastic straws! There is no admission charge for this Green Drinks but donations are most appreciated.

SERCTuesday, March 6 - Lecture: Ancient Oysters and Modern Messes - How Archaeology Can Help Clean Up Chesapeake Bay
7 p.m., Schmidt Conference Center, Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, 647 Contees Wharf Road, Edgewater
Speaker: Leslie Reeder-Myers (Temple University anthropologist)
Oysters struggle to grow in the Rhode River today,  but dozens of archaeological sites full of oyster shells tell us that they were once plentiful. These sites show how Native Americans used the abundant resources of Chesapeake Bay for thousands of years, and how the relationship between people and the Bay has shifted over the past few centuries. In this talk, anthropologist Leslie Reeder-Myers will explore how Chesapeake environments and cultures have changed, and investigate a few archaeological clues about what we could do differently today. This lecture is part of SERC's Winter Evening Lecture Series. Free.

SERCTuesday, March 13 - Lecture: The Sellman House - Three Centuries of Building and Living on the Chesapeake
7 p.m., Schmidt Conference Center, Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, 647 Contees Wharf Road, Edgewater
Speaker: Preston Hull, architectural conservator (Building Conservation Associates, Inc.)
The Sellman/Kirkpatrick-Howat House, known to its occupants as Woodlawn, embodies almost three centuries of change. Over the generations, the needs and ideals of the families who lived there shifted in relation to their surroundings. Nowhere is this clearer than in the house’s three sections, each built more than 100 years apart. From its origins as a tobacco plantation house in the early 1700s, to its 1979 passive solar addition, the story of Woodlawn is a reflection of the story of the Chesapeake itself. This lecture is part of SERC's Winter Evening Lecture Series. Free.
