Grow a Forest: Tree & Shrub Nursery
In the last 100 years, the Chesapeake Bay watershed has lost more than half of the extensive forests that originally covered 95 percent of the land surrounding the Bay and its tributaries. There are not nearly enough remaining woodlands to keep pace with development and an expanding population, factors that threaten to compromise the health of the Bay watershed and overwhelm the progress made to restore the Bay. It is imperative that we protect the remaining forests and restore woodlands, especially streamside forests. What better way to achieve this than to grow your own forest with a school tree & shrub nursery!
