can mean many different things – teaching children about the wonders of nature, showing a landowner how to remove buckthorn and honeysuckle from an old oak-hickory woodland to give big trees new life, helping someone with a small back yard plant a rain garden to soak up the water from the sump pump.
It also means participating in local government, helping our local officials and representatives learn about our environment and helping them to understand how much it means to us – their constituency. Together, we can increase interest and involvement in finding ways to take care of this incredible area in which we have the pleasure of living.
means not only that organizations like the BCWA help protect and restore our woodlands and wetlands in the Watershed, but more importantly that individual landowners make the decision to involve themselves in these activities – not only at sites like Boloria, but on their own properties. Remember, BCWA can give advice and guidance to get you started and to keep you going. Stewardship is something we all do together!
