▪ Upcoming Events at the Chesapeake Ecology Center
It’s getting warmer, and volunteers have been playing in the dirt at the Chesapeake Ecology Center (CEC)! From planting native shrubs and trees to providing garden care for the Native Plant Demonstration Gardens, volunteers will be digging in the dirt on Saturday mornings throughout the growing season. Garden tours will also be provided on the following dates, if requested by four or more individuals. Notably, Master Gardeners provide tremendous assistance and will be available to answer plant and pest questions. We hope you’ll join us!

Highlights from your local RainScaping Campaign
The RainScaping Campaign--an Environmental Partnership for Stormwater Runoff Solutions--has over 50 partners, all with a common purpose of improving the health of our tributaries and the Chesapeake Bay by motivating a critical mass of residents to make RainScaping the norm in Anne Arundel County. Collectively, we can make RainScaping happen!
PSAs/Ads, in a variety of media, and educational programs target urban and suburban landowners that understand the importance of rainscaping, but may need help to start rainscaping on their own. Through the efforts of the RainScaping Campaign, residents are encouraged to actively participate in rainscaping activities which result in reduced pesticide and fertilizer use, better management of pet waste and trash, and the installation of rain gardens, rain barrels, native trees and shrubs, and other "Beautiful Solutions to Water Pollution!"
