    The League of Women Voters of the Mid-Shore (LWVMS) and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), in partnership with the Talbot Spy, are sponsoring an environmental forum for candidates running in the 2022 Talbot County Council election.  The forum will take place on Wednesday, September 28 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Eastern Shore Conservation Center, 114 N. Washington Street in Easton.  It will focus on the environmental health of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, including climate adaptation and resilience; Chesapeake Bay restoration; and land use management and growth.
