VOLUNTEER DAY AT ANNAPOLIS HARBOUR CENTER

On Saturday, April 2, Will Saffell of ESA led a group of volunteers to remove trash and invasive species at the headwaters of Church Creek at the Annapolis Harbour Center. ESA designed the newly constructed stream restoration project for the South River Federation which will improve water quality and enhance over 1,500 linear feet of stream channel and over 5 acres forested wetland habitat. Despite rainy conditions, nearly 40 volunteers came out to donate their time to help in the annual Project Clean Stream event. Through this effort, a significant amount of trash and invasive plants were removed, which will enhance aquatic and riparian habitat in the valley, as well as survivorship of the native trees and shrubs that will be planted as part of the restoration effort. Through professional and volunteer efforts, ESA is proud to support the South River Federation in their mission to protect and restore the South River and its watershed.
