Patuxent Gateways Partnership, The John Smith 400 Project
Calvert Marine Museum
This project represents a collaborative effort made possible only through the Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network. The regional Gateways have come together to provide the public with a unique series of programs featuring Chesapeake Bay and John Smith experts to interpret the Chesapeake and Captain John Smith’s “Voyages of Exploration.” The project highlights the eleven Patuxent Gateway’s during John Smith’s exploration of the Bay and its tributaries 400 years ago. Specifically, the project will fund a speaker’s series focusing on various aspects of John Smith’s exploration and the Chesapeake Bay, placing ten speakers at ten different sites running throughout 2007. In addition, a publication will be created for broad distribution that highlights the Gateways network, the Patuxent partners, and all John Smith 400 related programming taking place at these sites over this period.
