Watershed weed whacking

August 30, 2005|By Ric Dugan

Samantha Gloria of Hawaiian Gardens, Calif., clears weeds Monday near Beaver Creek. Gloria was among a dozen AmeriCorps volunteers at the Newcomer Farm in Boonsboro doing maintenance work on stream fencing and a buffer as part of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation Farm Stewardship Program. The program is designed to help farm owners install and maintain buffers and fencing along waterways that feed the Chesapeake Bay. More than 500 trees and shrubs and 1,000 feet of fencing were installed this spring in the Beaver Creek and Antietam watersheds.
