The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is a key artery that moves people and goods throughout the state, keeping Maryland’s heart pumping. Unfortunately, increased traffic has clogged that artery and continues to hurt Marylanders from the perspectives of business, quality of life, and more. From beach travelers to daily commuters, all would benefit from a suite of solutions reducing traffic congestion as soon as possible. Now is the time to have that conversation.
Fittingly held at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club with the bridge as a backdrop, ESLC’s 19th Annual Planning Conference will stimulate conversation around ways to reduce traffic congestion today. Through interactive panel discussions and keynote speakers, guests will leave with a better understanding of this regional issue and the possible solutions for traffic congestion.
Attendees should come with an appetite for stimulating discussion…and delicious, locally sourced foods!
Refer and win! When you refer someone to the conference and they enter your name during online registration, you both will receive one free chance to win a raffle basket filled with local goodies! Already registered? Not to worry. Additional raffle tickets will be on sale throughout the conference.
Cost: $10 individual or $25 for the whole family (up to 5) TICKETS

Wanna get outside? Here it is – a fun and festive family-friendly event held on the permanently preserved, waterfront Leigh Family Farm in Kent County! To help celebrate a beautiful day on the farm, you will be treated to live music by two of the most raved about local bands… the toe-tapping, funky, hillbilly boogie sounds of The High and Wides; and the funk, jam rock, and soulful blues of Black Dog Alley. This celebration of the land will offer local Eastern Shore food, drink, and wares, available for purchase from a variety of vendors marketing the bounties of their craft. Many activities for land-lovers, such as guided birding walks, tours of the farm, games, and more will be offered to enhance appreciation of conservation, restoration, and ecology.

“Carpeted with farms, stitched with forests, and buttoned with rural fishing villages…” Congressman Wayne T. Gilchrest
Take a ride with ESLC staff and supporters on the Miles River and discuss our most ambitious initiative yet – A Delmarva Oasis. Preserving 50% of the Delmarva peninsula by the year 2030 is crucial to preserving the Eastern Shore way of life, and the ability to sustain it. President Rob Etgen and VP of Conservation Katie Parks White will explain how we endeavor to join with partners to create such an oasis, as you enjoy light fare, a glass of wine, and engage in this thought-provoking discussion.
