Wherever you are on Earth, you are in a watershed. Calvert County is a peninsula on a peninsula and thus we are clearly impacting a lot of water every day. ACLT Executive Director Greg Bowen will teach you how watersheds work and why we should talk about them. Learn what watershed your home is in and evaluate its condition and how you might impact it. How might you change the world?

Presenter Greg Bowen:

As Executive Director of the American Chestnut Land Trust, Greg Bowen implemented a “Watershed Awareness” program for Hunting Creek and St. Leonard Creek with the use of a Chesapeake Bay Trust Grant. When he was Director of Calvert County Planning & Zoning, he added a new Water Resources element for the county Comprehensive Plan, initiated the Calvert strategy for compliance with the EPA mandate to meet the Clean Water Act and oversaw Calvert's water testing program in all major subwatersheds in Calvert County.  

American Chestnut Land Trust

ACLT is a member-supported non-profit that protects the Parkers Creek and Governors Run watersheds and their surrounding natural lands, waterways, and wildlife habitats. With more than 3,200 acres of protected land, ACLT has built and maintains 22 miles of free trails and offers opportunities for the community to canoe and study the pristine ecosystems of the preserve. Plus, using earth-friendly practices, ACLT's Double Oak Farm produces thousands of pounds of produce which are donated to local food pantries. The Parkers Creek Preserve is located between Prince Frederick and Port Republic in Calvert County, Maryland.
