Hunters, in general, are often some of our greatest conservationists. Their passion for spending time in the outdoors puts them in close proximity to the remarkable beauty of our Chesapeake forest ecosystems, helping to create a conservation ethic.
During cleanup events, there is usually a plethora of visual litter that is quite easy to collect. However, at second glance, you can discover just how much trash is camouflaged within the environment!
DC’s Department of Energy and Environment has partnered with The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay to maintain over 350 public Green Stormwater Infrastructure practices otherwise known as Best Management Practices, or BMPs for short.
The gardens in DC are dormant in January, but the landscape maintenance crews are not. Without weeds to pull or perennials to maintain, the crews can tackle larger maintenance tasks, and we can provide trainings.
There are plenty of different ways invasive species spread, and a control tactic that may work for one species may be unwise to use on another. Familiarize yourself with the management and maintenance techniques that are known to work for a specific invasive.
Wetlands are crucial to the health and resiliency of the Bay in a time of rapidly changing climate. Climate change is also extending periods of wet and dry cycles. In times of drought, groundwater stored by wetlands can be critical in sustaining our native plants and animals. In times of extended rainfall, that same storage capability prevents or lessens flooding of our communities and important infrastructure.
