March 18, 2009

The Chesapeake Bay Trust announces over $1 million in grant funding to support organizations throughout the state implement on-the-ground restoration and hands-on education programs aimed at improving the health of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Five of the Trust’s nine grant programs were supported in this round of funding. The Agriculture, Environmental Education, Fisheries, Mini-Grant and Stewardship grant programs all awarded funding to support environmental restoration and education projects engaging residents from the Eastern Shore to Western Maryland.

Grants were awarded to sixty five organizations and schools to support statewide and regional projects in 18 counties and Baltimore City. In Washington County, the Beaver Creek Watershed Association will restore 1,000 feet of Beaver Creek with a natural channel design. Beaver Creek is the largest limestone stream in Maryland. Over the last eight years, restoration projects like this one have made Beaver Creek a natural reproducing trout stream.
