The journey to meet the deities of Midsummer will be Thursday 6/9/22 at CedarLight Grove. Midsummer will be Hellenic this year, and building off of our Beltaine omen where we received the message of legacy, our theme is "Accepting the Torch". Prometheus and Athena are our Beings of the Occasion.

Please arrive to CedarLight at 7:00 pm. The journey will begin promptly at 8:00 pm; the doors will be locked and no entrance/exit will be permitted until the journey is over. The event is in-person only (no Zoom access).

Folks may already have this information and are tracking but I wanted to share the informational e-mail I received 31 March from the CBF Maryland Outreach Coordinator. Some opportunities are opening up now. It is pasted below. ~Stephanie

Hello Friend of the Bay,

My name is David Tana, and I’m the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s (CBF) Maryland Outreach Manager. I am emailing today because you expressed an interest in restoration activities through our website. There are four primary areas where we look for volunteer support in Maryland: tree plantings, working on our regenerative farm, service in Baltimore City, and oyster restoration. We are hosting several events this spring, all of which will be within COVID-19 restrictions and will be designed to protect CBF staff and volunteers. Fortunately, all of these events take place outdoors, and social distancing is easy to accommodate.

Every spring and fall, we have multiple public tree and wetland planting events on Saturdays throughout the season. Planting streamside buffers on agricultural properties reduces pollution loads, prevents sediment erosion, creates wildlife habitat, sequesters carbon, and creates clean air for the surrounding community. These events will be held on April 10, 17, 24, and May 15 in Frederick County and on the Eastern Shore, and you can register online at cbf.org/mdrestoration now.

There is always work to be done at Clagett Farm, CBF’s regenerative working farm in Upper Marlboro. We use it to showcase Bay-friendly agricultural practices, and they have a working vegetable operation, native tree nursery (where the trees we plant come from), and grass-fed cattle and sheep. Clagett is currently accepting volunteers in the tree nursery in groups of 10 or less on Tuesdays and Fridays from now until the end of April. You can find online registration on our event calendar. This is a great place to learn about the connection between clean water, food equity, and agricultural systems.

Our Baltimore Program also accepts volunteers from around March to December, and offers a variety of opportunities. From oyster gardening, to litter pickup, to vacant lot greening, we’re working in Baltimore City to create a large network of engaged citizens that are working towards a healthier harbor. These events can also be found on our event calendar.

The MD Oyster Restoration Center in Shady Side holds shell shaking, bagging, oyster gardening, and reef ball building events periodically from April through October. These activities are a critical part of our efforts to restore the Eastern oyster – a critical filter and provider of habitat - in the Bay.  Once up and running again, these events will also be on our event calendar.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out, and thank you again for your interest in volunteering to help Save the Bay.
 

Stay safe and healthy,
 

More trees please

Was a follow update date to the annual meeting set?  I haven't see the dates for events update on the google calendar so I wasn't sure if maybe I missed it.

The annual meeting will begin at 1PM on January 10, 2021 after Walk with the Old Ones.

A proposed agenda will be distributed in advance. This agenda must be adopted by the voting members at the onset of the meeting by a majority vote. Afterwards, a 2/3 majority vote is required to change the agenda. These procedures are consistent with Robert's Rules of Order.

I was looking for ways for my students to volunteer with the community, and this came up as an option.  Most of the opportunities are not during the school day, so it doesn't work well for the program, but I thought it sounded like something the grove would enjoy.  Blue Water Baltimore helps to plant trees, clean up streams and and forests and protect the waterways all over Baltimore :).  They ask people to register for any volunteer work and say they provide tools and training.

Here is there calendar of events

https://www.bluewaterbaltimore.org/events/

Saturday April 6  9:00am - Watershed clean up in the Gwynn Oaks Community   -  2720 Gwynnmore Avenue, Gwynn Oak, MD 21207

Wednesday April 3rd 5:30 (training) and Saturday April 6th 11:00am - 3pm (event) - Tree Giveaway station (free native trees and some instructions on growing for native trees for residents of Baltimore City and County only
