Restoring Maryland’s Lakes and Estuaries: Naturally Socially Distanced Work

This year has brought an increased appreciation for the recreational opportunities available in our communities.  Learn how DNR’s State Lakes Protection and Restoration Fund and the public’s requested priorities are being used to restore Maryland’s lakes.  Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) restoration projects are also being ramped up to ensure Marylanders have access to clean and navigable waterways:  Chesapeake Conservation Corps member, Jonas Lee, is enhancing DNR’s SAV restoration efforts by growing wild celery in multiple water bodies using seeds collected from the Sassafras River.  Attendees will also have an interactive introduction to DNR’s online SAV identification guide.

Speakers: Mike Naylor and Amy Hamilton, Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Tidewater Ecosystems Assessment, and Jonas Lee, Chesapeake Conservation Corps
