Chesapeake Bay Day - October 5, 2005
headline bar

**Chesapeake Bay Day was a huge success! A special Thank-you to all that came out**

Presentations, demonstrations, and tours will showcase BARC’s unique research contributions promoting agricultural production systems that protect soil, water, and air quality. In addition, there will be a signing of a landmark Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between BARC, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and a consortium of nine Land Grant universities. This MOU will formally unite the land-based research community within the watershed as we move collaboratively forward toward meeting the Chesapeake 2000 Agreement’s Keystone Commitments to restore the Bay by 2010. This leadership agreement will provide a working infrastructure to improve the efficiencies of management practices and seeking innovative solutions for reducing pollution to the Bay.
