After Hours Lecture Series

For the past two decades, Dr. David Malmquist has been writing about the Chesapeake Bay on an almost daily basis in his position as News and Media Director at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. An avid outdoor explorer, he has also been traveling the Bay region, soaking up its rich heritage, and documenting its flora and fauna. He has now combined the two into the recently published book Chesapeake Bay Explorer's Guide: Natural History, Plants, and Wildlife, which provides readers with ecological notes about various locations throughout Virginia, history of the Bay region and its people, and what the Bay may look like in the future. Join us as Dr. Malmquist discusses the making of this book and his years of exploration around the Bay. 

We are excited to once again offer this lecture in-person in McHugh Auditorium at VIMS! Dr. Malmquist will be signing books before the lecture, so come early to purchase a book in the VIMS Gift Shop and talk with the author. Face masks are required for all individuals in indoor spaces on the VIMS campus. Due to current masking requirements, we will not be providing refreshments during this event.  

This lecture will also be available as a live-streamed webinar. Registration is required for both in-person and webinar, and you can select which way you will attend when you register. Webinar links will be sent in the registration confirmation email. 

After Hours lectures are designed for an adult audience. At this time, the VIMS campus is closed to individuals under the age of 13.
