Presenter: Paul Kazyak | Scientist and Professor, Johns Hopkins University
Paul Kazyak is an aquatic ecologist with more than 30 years of experience working on Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. During his career as a senior scientist with Maryland DNR, Paul directed water quality monitoring for the Chesapeake and Coastal Bays Trust Fund, and he played a key role in designing and leading the nationally renowned Maryland Biological Stream Survey (MBSS). He also served as Maryland liaison for the Highlands Action Program (HAP). In this role he worked on numerous sustainability-related projects and did environmental leadership and sustainability trainings for community leaders, elected officials, DNR staff, and others. He also really learned the lesson that ecological problems are economic problems that are also cultural problems, and that the bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity.
