A new morn whispers across the shoreline; waterfowl are seeking sanctuary; the tidal flow is washing over the native grasses; and dawn breaks over the horizon.
...and the day begins at Environmental Concern’s Campus in historic St. Michaels, Maryland. Every day we set our course, and put into action what we’ve learned over the past 40 years.
As designers, restorers, horticulturists, educators and stewards of wetlands, we are motivated every day, knowing that we’re leaving a healthier Chesapeake Bay as our legacy. Environmental Concern’s living shoreline habitats are constructed with the goal of improving water quality, enhancing nature’s habitats, and preserving nature’s beauty for generations to come.
Our knowledge comes in part from formal education – but our greatest strength comes from 40 years of experience working in the field. We are wetland practitioners – and we excel at building living habitats: from 1 acre ponds to 4000 foot shorelines. Every foot of restored wetland habitat improves the water quality in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.
Since 1972, you have supported our commitment to wetlands: as a contributor, customer, client or friend. Your involvement in EC’s activities has inspired us to continue this important work.
Thank you for making the choice to do what’s best for the Bay – your commitment to restore your shoreline; to purchase native plants for your landscaping projects; to attend a community workshop to learn how to install a rain barrel – your connection has been crucial to our success and to our commitment to the Chesapeake Bay community.
I invite you to stop by, call or visit us in St. Michaels, Maryland. Explore our website to learn about our offerings for the coming year, and successes from past years. If you would like to support our mission, click on “Support Us” below.
We’ve been restoring the Bay…
…one wetland at a time, since 1972.
