Anyone with a garden knows that invasive plant species grow rapidly and often jeopardize a gardener’s hard work. To reduce the impact on roadside plants and trees, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) is underway with a $2 million project to eradicate invasive vines such as Porcelainberry and Kudzu, as well as other invasive and noxious plants. Weather permitting, the project will be complete fall 2018.

In an effort to promote the Hawkins Cove Restoration Project, funded through the Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, GreenSmith Pubic Affairs, a public relations firm, has been hired to publicize this critical environmental project. GreenSmith will be developing a video, promoting the project to the media, and increasing social media efforts, particularly as we continue to engage with communities in Hawkins Cove at planting events, stormwater management demonstrations, and other outreach and education events.
Volunteers are needed to help remove invasive and non-native plant species from the Spa Creek area around the Chesapeake Children’s Museum, 25 Silopanna Rd. Student teams from the Green Summer Works (GSW) program along with the Annapolis READY (Restoring the Environment and Developing Youth) program will be working along with volunteers to lend their support, tools and talent.
