Most of us don’t think about water.  We turn on the tap and there it is.  But for the growing number of residents who live along the Eastern Shore, and for those who glean a living from Maryland’s most precious waterway, there are as many opinions about county watershed implementation plans (WIPs) as species that live and thrive in the Chesapeake Bay.

Let’s Be Shore, a project of the Maryland Humanities Council’s Practicing Democracy program, wants to jump start the conversation.

Let’s Be Shore
seeks to bring people with divergent perspectives together for respectful dialogue, offering a forum for residents to express views on the issues of land use, agriculture, the economy, and water quality along Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Let’s Be Shore uses photography, short films, and other humanities pieces to spur Eastern Shore residents to share their personal connection to the water, think critically about water quality, and come together to better understand the complexity of this multi-faceted issue.
