Landowner’s Day Educates Local Stakeholders

Jerry Harris, a Board member of Waterfowl Chesapeake, hosted a variety of guests at his annual “Eastern Shore Landowners’ Get Together” on Thursday, April 19th.

The first stop of the day included a walkaround of impoundments created in recent years in part by Ducks Unlimited at a personal property near Cambridge, followed by a look at the new impoundments of another personal property in Trappe.
