The Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional (CBLP) certification helps the Chesapeake Bay watershed by standardizing knowledge and practices of resilient stormwater management, the use of native plants, the establishment of natural communities, and the restoration of habitat.

Across the six states and District of Columbia in Bay watersheds, local governments, non-governmental organizations and neighborhoods are asking land owners and landscapers to increase the use of these small, residential-scale practices for a healthier Chesapeake Bay.

Gaining the CBLP credential will help landscape professionals connect with potential employers, and ultimately ensure that these practices function properly, in order to meet runoff, sediment, and nutrient reduction goals.

The Anne Arundel County Watershed Stewards Academy is hosting an Information Session for anyone interested in learning more about the training.

WHEN: June 20th 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

WHERE: Pip Moyer Recreation Center (273 Hilltop Lane Annapolis, MD 21403)
