I’m a volunteer – a very busy one. It’s just me and my red pickup truck. I’m on my community board where I focus on erosion control and stormwater runoff. For the past 5 years I’ve been planting selections of native plants in my home landscape – lots of them. I’m trying to grow every plant in the U.S. Fish & Wildlife – Chesapeake Bay Watershed guidebook, especially those that can solve problems like prevent erosion, filter runoff or sustain a butterfly population. Studying plants, properly siting them, challenging the literature that says ‘drought tolerant’ or ‘withstands inudation’, I learn by growing. The more I learn the better I can help others. I am an incessant reader and I attend lectures year-round; being a life-long learner is how you learn to adapt and improve your value to others. I believe native plants are what is going to save the Bay, its tributaries and all the species that live in, on and around it.
