Go Native at the Chesapeake Ecology Center

You may wish to check out the Chesapeake Ecology Center on College Creek in Annapolis which is holding its annual open house and native plant sale on Saturday, September 6th from 10 am to 2 pm. Since its beginning in 2002, the area has grown and bloomed into 20 Native Plant Demonstration Gardens and Sites.

The gardens and sites are just minutes from downtown and the State Capital, on the grounds of Adams Academy at Adams Park, 245 Clay Street, Annapolis, Maryland. Regular visiting hours during the school year are after 4 PM and anytime on the weekends and during the summer. Please join us for our Annual Garden Open House and Native Plant Sale on Saturday, September 6th, 10 AM to 2 PM.

The Chesapeake Ecology Center is dedicated to promoting and educating the public about community greening and conservation landscaping practices for the Chesapeake Bay watershed that result in a healthier and more beautiful environment benefiting residents and the region's biological diversity. They are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit environmental organization.

CP is disappointed that the organizers of the CEC seem to think that humans only drive and don't walk or bike anywhere. Not only do they do nothing on the web-site to encourage visitors to bike or walk, under the part labeled "directions" they only provide information about driving there. BUT..it is a great destination for walking, biking or perhaps even coming by boat...and we pledge to work with them to promote all transportation options and to educate visitors about the environmental impacts.
