The Chesapeake Bay Program?s Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee and the Water Quality Goal Implementation Team are sponsoring a series of two workshops to provide a forum for the evaluation of pasture and livestock exclusion practices, current implementation, and existing programs throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed. The workshops will produce science-based effectiveness estimates for these practices for the Chesapeake Bay Program modeling efforts, as well as to test a draft protocol for the development, review, and incorporation of new and existing best management practices (BMPs) for the Chesapeake Bay Program partnership. The first workshop (October 27-28, 2009) will convene a science panel to develop draft practice definitions and model effectiveness values for initial model placeholders. A second follow-up workshop (date to be determined) will finalize a recommendation report for consideration by the Chesapeake Bay Program partnership using the draft evaluation protocol.
The information on this Calendar regarding Chesapeake Bay Program meetings and events is accurate to the best of our knowledge.
