Help Us Plan the Chesapeake Bay Storytellers Training

The Maryland Office of Tourism and the National Park Service will be offering a training program for Chesapeake Bay guides, watermen/waterwomen and water-based tour providers with the goals of increased private sector business growth and increased stewardship of the Chesapeake Bay. The training will assist businesses with the development of new tours or enhancement of existing ones. The in-person classroom-style training program will include tour development guidance, public speaking and presentation skills, Chesapeake Bay curriculum and information about other travel opportunities around the Chesapeake Bay. Once developed, the tours and businesses will be marketed by OTD and its partners. To help us develop the best training platform, and plan training locations, dates and times, water-based tour providers are encouraged to complete this survey by Tuesday, January 22.
