Giving $17,500 to Pickering Creek for Wetlands!

October 24 – This month, we proudly announced our funding support for two projects that are part of Pickering Creek Audubon Center’s “Waterfowl, Wetlands and People” initiative. Chesapeake’s $17,500 WC grant is a perfect match for us since it will help with the creation of a wetland and meadow trail on their newly restored 17-acre freshwater wetland as well as fully funding landowner workshops.

Pickering Creek’s wetland and meadow trail project invites casual visitors to experience freshwater wetlands and the waterfowl and other wildlife in their habitat. While the second portion of funding will support landowner workshops to be presented by Pickering Creek Audubon and Chesapeake Wildlife Heritage, most likely next spring.  For more >>
