Wagner Lab research on the eastern brook trout, research led by PhD student Shannon White, made its debut in the film “Expedition Chesapeake, A Journey of Discovery,”- a film developed by the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. The film premiered on Wednesday, 20 March in Harrisburg, PA. Emmy-award-winning naturalist Jeff Corwin is the guide on this journey - encouraging audiences to be active members of their communities in an effort to conserve and restore the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed. We had a great time at the premiere and hope others check it out!
