How does land use impact local communities, waterways and the Chesapeake Bay?

How we use the land affects both people and the environment. Forests provide valuable habitat that protects clean water and air. Well-managed agricultural lands can restore rivers and streams and provide habitat to insects, birds and mammals. And land use planning can make communities more livable and resilient.

Listen as experts from the U.S. Geological Survey, Eastern Shore Land Conservancy and Piedmont Environmental Council discuss efforts that have conserved land, restored habitats and protected residents.
