Salisbury University hosts inaugural Chesapeake Studies Conference
SALISBURY, Md. – Dozens of experts, students, scholars and more from across the state of Maryland spent the day at Salisbury University for its inaugural Chesapeake Studies Conference. Officials say the two day conference allows people to observe Chesapeake and Delmarva culture firsthand. They add that those who attend the conference will also get a chance to examine the economic, cultural, and physical environment on Delmarva. While also discussing ways to improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
“We can really make a difference in terms of the bays health and in terms of how Delmarva’s perceived and how Delmarvan’s understand themselves and the region. The more we can study and preserve the culture of this place the better,” said Beatriz Hardy.
University officials add that activities for the second day of the conference will begin at 9 AM. Where field trips to the Horn Point Oyster Hatchery, Smith Island, and the Harriet Tubman center will be available.
