The three-part “Where Tide and Time Meet” series provided attendees deeper insight to Southern Maryland’s heritage areas. In heritage areas, individuals, businesses, nonprofits, and governments form partnerships to preserve the best of Maryland’s historic sites and towns, unspoiled natural landscapes, and enduring traditions.

The first lecture in the series was held in early September, the second in October.

The Southern Maryland Heritage Area is in the process of becoming the 56th National Heritage Area in the US, with legislation introduced Sen. Ben Cardin and Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer, with the support of Sen. Chris Van Hollen. The designation will raise the national and international profile of the region.
