Guest Host: Mark McDonald

It’s been an autumn (and summer) of strange weather: high temperatures and limited rainfall. As scientists and farmers debate whether the region is in the midst of a drought, the conditions are having interesting, sometimes unexpected effects on the Chesapeake. We get an update on the health of the Bay, and an update on a new government program to prioritize problems.
