CHWA CESU Brochure
We are excited to announce that the Chesapeake Watershed CESU Research Network now has a promotional brochure that highlights the federal and non-federal partners we have in our network along with key resources such as the Experts Database and our website. This brochure was developed at the suggestion of Lara Fowler, Assistant Director of the Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment. She connected us with Kevin Sliman and Brenna Buck on her team and offered their design services to create the brochure. We would like to thank Penn State University and their generous efforts!

If you would like copies of the brochure to help promote the network among your colleagues, please contact Danny Filer at 301-689-7108 or by email at .

Network Updates
We've recently done some fall cleaning on the CHWA CESU website. You'll notice the menu has been reorganized, and we now offer a " Information for Prospective Partners " page. Is there something you think is missing from the site? If so, let Dan and Rhonda know.
