Restoration Projects

Through thoughtful site design, Arlington Echo has added many structures to enhance environmental and outdoor learning such as piers, a marsh boardwalk, a forest pavilion, and a system of trails. Site design also incorporates conservation practices. Rainbarrels catch water from roofs, slowing the velocity of runoff, and funnel the water into native bogs and gardens. Arlington Echo also maintains a variety of restored natural habitats on site. Two Chesapeake Costal Plain bogs not only provide habitat for wildlife and threatened plant species such as the purple pitcher plant, but also offer opportunities to teach school groups about wetlands. A recently restored shoreline now provides habitat for fish, waterfowl, and crabs. Native landscaping, planted by students, demonstrates the importance of using native vegetation in gardens. Projects conducted with schools, such as the soft shoreline put in at Brewer’s Creek, benefited the community as well as taught students and adults the value of preserving wildlife habitat. Making environmental practices accessible is one of many ways that Arlington Echo helps make environmental change in Anne Arundel County.
