The Hometown Habitat film crew ended their West Coast tour with a visit to Wild Ones Center. Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes is a non-profit that promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through native plant communities. Their goals are to provide information about native plant landscaping and help strengthen communication between those interested in using native plants.

Monarch Sister Schools Program is partnering up with Chesapeake Natives Inc. for a volunteer gardening day. To provide a helping hand for our native pollinators come out to Chesapeake Natives Nursery on Saturday, April 26th, from 9:00am-1:00pm. Help pot up seedlings and plugs. These plants will be used at schools and garden centers this Spring.
To mark the 10th Anniversary of Chesapeake Conservation Landscaping Council’s formation, we have revised and updated our seminal document, Conservation Landscaping Guidelines: The Eight Essential Elements of Conservation Landscaping. In the revised edition, all links have been reviewed and updated. It also reflects recent research on the impacts of climate change and sea level rise in our region. A PDF version of the document is available for download on the CCLC web site, and print copies are available for a small fee.
