Member’s Exhibition Preview — Potomac Waterfowling: Gunning the Nation’s River 

April 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Potomac Waterfowling: Gunning the Nation’s River follows the harvesting history from 18th century statesmen like George Washington, who wrote about memorable hunts of the Potomac’s stunning numbers of waterfowl, to the 20th century when the combination of Washington, D.C.’s growing economy and the rich Potomac environment spurred both commercial and sport markets for waterfowl. Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum members, along with those of the East Coast Decoy Collectors Association, are invited to a private exhibition preview reception on Friday, April 7, beginning at 5:30 pm, with light refreshments served. The reception is free for CBMM and ECDCA members, with space limited and registration required by April 1.
