The Chesapeake Bay String of Pearls Project will honor and celebrate six land owners and organizations for acting to “preserve forever” lands in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. The ceremony will take place on Wednesday, September 22, at 12:00 p.m., in the Ceremonial Court Room of the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, 7 Church Circle, Annapolis. A reception will follow in the Lawyer’s Lounge.
Certificates and resolutions honoring the actions of individuals and organizations will be presented by Anne Arundel County, the Maryland legislature and the State of Maryland. Recordation of these “pearls” -- protected lands in the Bay watershed -- and the names of those acting to preserve these lands will be made in the Register of Pearls in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. These inscriptions in the Register in public display in the circuit court will be lasting recognition of these legacies.
The purpose of The Chesapeake Bay String of Pearls Project (CBSOP) is to honor those who have contributed lands for preservation in six states and the District of Columbia of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. This ceremony will honor land donors in Anne Arundel County as nominated by riverkeepers of the Magothy, Patuxent, Severn, South, and West/Rhode Rivers. Future ceremonies will honor those who protect lands elsewhere in the State of Maryland, and in other states in the watershed.
Those to be honored on September 22, are:
Patuxent River Watershed --
Patuxent Preserve Homeowners Association; Patuxent Preserve Common Lands, Gambrills, MD
Magothy River Watershed --
Walter "Jake" Jacobs; Kurrle Knoll, Arnold, MD
