Rachel Carson ignited the modern environmental movement after a challenging childhood in Pennsylvania during the Great Depression, followed by her graduate study at Johns Hopkins University. Her life-long love of the sea was only enhanced by finally seeing it when she worked at Woods Hole in Cape Cod; after three books about the sea, Carson’s Silent Spring catapulted this shy scientist into the limelight where chemical industries attacked her findings about DDT and President Kennedy’s committee validated her findings.

This performance highlights Carson’s research, personal life and legacy, which we still enjoy today along the Chesapeake Bay.
