Day On The Bay!

On Sunday April 27th, we will have a lot of fun helping the environment!  CPRC along with Matrix New World, CBEC, and Restore the Earth Foundation organized a Coastal Wetland Restoration project where volunteers will plant nearly 600 plants over a 2,000 square foot area to restore a coastal wetland and help prevent further shoreline erosion. It expected that this volunteer effort will produce new habitats that will support a wide variety of
aquatic and terrestrial wildlife.  Volunteers should be prepared to get down and dirty and should dress accordingly. Please take a look at this flyer for more details and email vice.president.cprc.setac@gmail.com with questions or to RSVP.

Also on Sunday April 27th there will be a guided bird walk being led by Dave Palmer of Wildlife International.  The bird walk will begin at 8 am, so show up early on Sunday and see some of the amazing wildlife on the Chesapeake Bay.
