ES students work on Cheapeake Bay Foundation project

Hi, folks –

            Three ES majors – Katie McCrae, Kendall Radovich, and Jake Patton – spent a fun day planting trees in the Monocacy River watershed with CBF Watershed Restoration Scientist Rob Schnabel.  Rob was a student of mine many years ago.  It’s all about the networking!

            Check out the attached pix!

            Proof, yet again, that ES majors rock! – John

Hello John-

Thank you for sending a few of your students to the planting.  We planted 900 trees and shrubs on Little Pipe Creek, tributary to the Monocacy River.  A couple of photos from the planting.

Take care-
