The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay’s 14th Annual Chesapeake Watershed Forum (held November 15 – 17, 2019 in Shepherdstown, WV) is a watershed-wide event reaching over 400 restoration and protection practitioners annually to inspire and empower local action towards clean water. We share successful tools and techniques, build capacities of local organizations and governments, foster partnerships, educate on new initiatives, network among each other, and celebrate our successes.
Our theme for 2019, “Better Together: Diverse and Innovative Collaborations for the Chesapeake Watershed,” intends to highlight collaborative models from the Chesapeake Bay Watershed that accelerate the protection and restoration of its lands and waters. We seek to understand what gives these collaborations staying power, to explore new roles for the veterans of the Chesapeake Bay restoration movement, to identify opportunities to engage non-traditional stakeholders and work cross-sectors, and to learn how to strengthen partnerships by following the principles of equity in order to create a diverse and inclusive movement.
