Eco-Fair to Engage the Communities Around Hawkins Cove
Rosalie E. Mitchell Community Center, Harbour House, 1014 President Street, Eastport
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The Eco-Fair will raise awareness about the impact of stormwater on the Cove, the work to be done, and how each individual can help. There will be environmental awareness games for kids, watershed demonstration projects, project information, information about Green technologies for the home, kids’ environmental themed art contest, raffles, prizes, and food. Organizers include volunteers from Hawkins Cove Watershed communities: Housing Authority of the City of Annapolis - Eastport Terrace and Harbor House, Shearwater, Hawkins Cove, and Boucher Landing.
The Hawkins Cove mini-watershed contributes a significant pollutant load to Spa Creek, the Severn River, and the Chesapeake Bay. Silt funneled into the cove by stormwater has made it toxic to aquatic life and inhospitable to humankind. In 2008, the Center for Watershed Protection gave the area a 100-point priority score, the maximum possible, for remediation.
In 2015, the Chesapeake Bay Trust provided initial grant funding to the Spa Creek Conservancy (SCC) to begin restoration of the cove. Please support us by becoming a sponsor of our community kickoff Eco Fair!
