Bay Sentinel Site Cooperative Gains First Coordinator
Sarah Wilkins
Sarah Wilkins

SARAH WILKINS HAS BEEN NAMED as the first-ever coordinator of the Chesapeake Bay Sentinel Site Cooperative (CBSSC). She will work to disseminate data about the Bay and to provide related tools, visualizations, and services to a variety of audiences to help them understand and prepare for the effects of changing climate conditions, including increased coastal flooding.

CBSSC is a partnership among local, state, and federal agencies as well as academic institutions, non-profit and regional organizations, and local communities. The cooperative brings together experts from scientific, resource management, and environmental stewardship groups to inform management decisions relating to flooding and rising seas.

Wilkins works for the Maryland Sea Grant Extension Program and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources; she is based in Annapolis, but will work throughout the Bay region. The position is funded through a grant from NOAA to Maryland Sea Grant, with additional support from the University of Maryland Extension and DNR's Chesapeake and Coastal Service.

This 72-page, full-color report compiles this content along with a new foreword to offer a comprehensive look at the subject. Download a pdf of the report here.
