|MPT Presents Chesapeake Bay Week
April 10-17, 2011
The Chesapeake Bay–the world's largest estuary–got its name from the Powhatan Indian word, chesepiooc, which means "Great Shellfish Bays." It was described by H.L. Mencken, the sage of Baltimore, as "an immense protein factory."
It's such an important part of our state's history and its identity, which is why Maryland Public Television (MPT) celebrates this important natural resource and highlights its most critical issues during its annual Chesapeake Bay Week.
The only programming initiative of its kind in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed region, Chesapeake Bay Week is part of MPT's year-round, ongoing commitment to the bay and our environment.
At the conclusion of Chesapeake Bay Week, MPT holds a Volunteer-a-thon to give viewers a unique chance to donate volunteer hours to help clean up the bay.
