Anne Arundel County, Maryland
In FY2019, ACFHP secured funding through the National Fish Habitat Action Plan to support Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Anne Arundel Community College, and partners in their efforts to increase populations of brackish (mesohaline) and freshwater species of SAV. By collecting seeds and strategically redistributing them in key areas of the Bay, they will restore an estimated 10 acres of fish habitat. This work is contributing to the Chesapeake Bay Program’s overall goal of restoring and maintaining a total of 185,000 acres bay-wide.
Want to help expand on these restoration efforts? You can donate by contacting Lisa Havel, the ACFHP coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org). For every dollar donated, you can restore six square feet of SAV!
