Join us for a tour to celebrate WSA’s 10th Anniversary. In honor of 10 years of restoring our waterways, we’ve curated two tours to recognize our most impactful sites. Each tour includes transportation from the meeting location to all of the project sites, and attendees will enjoy refreshments featuring the “tastes of summer” at each stop.
Steward Impact Tour: This tour showcases three outstanding projects that Stewards have led from the last decade, ranging from conservation landscaping to large scale stream restoration. Sites include:
Residential Projects in Round Bay – Master Watershed Steward Alison Milligan will highlight native plants that she uses in her landscape to provide inspiration for your own neighborhood
Woods Memorial Church – We’ll take a look at the stormwater projects near the church and community center
Cattail Creek Stream Restoration and Living Shoreline – Stewards and community members in the Berrywood community rallied together to replace the marina’s bulkhead with a living shoreline, installed a number of rain gardens to treat runoff from the basketball court and other impervious surface, and installed a major stream restoration that has already brought fish and other wildlife back to the creek.
This tour will depart from Woods Memorial Church in Severna Park.
RiverWise Congregations Tour: This tour highlights three congregational sites in the county to showcase the impact of faithful environmental stewardship for creation care.
Holy Family Catholic Church – This church in Davidsonville features stormwater ponds and other projects.
Mt. Moriah AME Church – You’ll see rain gardens and other projects along Bay Ridge Ave.
St. Luke’s Restoration of Nature – A major stream restoration and now a flourishing site for environmental education, Stewards will lead a tour of this project at St. Luke’s Church in Annapolis.
This tour will depart from St. Luke’s Restoration of Nature in Annapolis.
