On Wednesday, August 3, 2016 the Chesapeake BaySavers and Spa Creek Conservancy worked with two different groups from the Annapolis area to do an invasive and non-native species removal at the Chesapeake Children’s Museum in order to prepare for channel restoration project that will be implemented over the next six months.
We worked alongside students from the Green Summer Works program and the Annapolis READY program which allowed for them to get outdoors and make a difference. We removed many invasive and non-native plants, cleaned up trash and removed English Ivy which is harmful to the trees.
The day was hot but the volunteers stayed positive and we got a lot done! We even found a box turtle which proved that this area is still habitable and with our improvement we hope to see more animals like him back in the area.
