Dr. Mamie Parker, a noted fish and wildlife biologist, will galvanize our morning plenary with a presentation entitled "Moving Beyond Stuck, Stalled, and Scared to Environmental Literacy." As a board member of the Chesapeake Conservancy and president of Ma Parker and Associates, Dr. Parker speaks in local schools, hoping to instill a love of conservation in students. In addition to her many accolades, this groundbreaking scientist was also the first African American Regional Director of the 13 Northeastern states for the Fisheries and Habitat Conservation at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Tom Horton, our keynote speaker, is an award-winning journalist who chronicled marine and human life in the Chesapeake Bay for the Baltimore Sun for 35 years. Mr. Horton has written 8 books about the Bay. He has also written for National Geographic, Rolling Stone, the New York Times Magazine, and others. Mr. Horton is currently professor of practice in environmental studies at Salisbury University.
