Join us for Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional (CBLP) Level 1 training, September 10-11, 2019, in Richmond, VA.  Additional dates and locations in MD, PA, and VA are offered this summer.  Visit  for more information.

CBLP’s active learning program engages participants to develop critical thinking, problem solving, and collaborative practice skills. We focus on the unique ecology and regulations of the Bay region.

Level 1 consists of a two-day class that combines classroom learning about conservation landscaping (native plants, natural communities, habitat, soils, invasives management) and stormwater best management practices (BMPs), with a field-based maintenance practicum. The class also covers BMP inspection and verification protocols. Level 1 candidates are required to pass a written examination after the class.

Candidates receive access to CBLP’s online webinar series on sustainable landscaping topics and a copy of CBLP’s sustainable landscape maintenance manual, as well as exam preparation tutorials. Additional resources are available via free download or purchase.
