This project examines the meaning of restoration in the Chesapeake Bay by exploring the human relationships with the Bay that have been threatened or disrupted by industrial and commercial development. Utilizing the concept of "place," it will provide framework for understanding restoration in cultural and psychological, as well as biological and economic terms. The project will elicit contemporary visions of restoration through focus groups comprised of Bay area residents, workers, users, activists, and policy makers, and will investigate historical and literary accounts of the Bay to place contemporary views in a broader context.
