Come on down and join Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake, ShoreRivers, and environmental allies alike, at Saint Paul’s Parish in Centreville, MD, 2:00pm-4:00pm for...
Queen Anne’s EcoFest!
Join us at 2:00pm inside Saint Paul’s Parish for a special presentation of the Thanksgiving Address from Chief Dennis J. Coker of the Lenape Tribe of Delaware. November is Native American Heritage Month, so come join us and learn something new about the cultures and traditions of the native people who call the Eastern Shore home.
Afterwards, join us outside Saint Paul’s Parish and meet some of the environmental organizations working hard to foster local stewardship and improve our local waterways here on the northern Eastern Shore..
EcoFest activities featuring:
- Free Native Plant Seed Giveaway (pre-register to reserve yours!)
- Critter Bingo, dream catcher weaving, story-telling, and arts-and-crafts
- Rain garden tours
- Birding and native-species information
- Snacks & Treats
- Presentations from local environmental groups, and ways to get involved!
Through a Chesapeake Bay Trust grant, and the joined efforts of ShoreRivers and Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake, Saint Paul’s Parish was able to apply for and install a rain garden on the congregation's property. These rain gardens treat stormwater coming off their church's roof, and help reduce the congregation's ecological footprint. They are thrilled to share their story with you!
IPC and ShoreRivers are looking to work with more congregations across the northern Eastern Shore on similar projects that not only beautify congregational properties, but also help heal local waterways.
So come on out for some family fun, and learn how your congregation can be better earth stewards and secure grant funding for projects as well! Contact Taylor at [email protected] or 410-609-6852 for more information.
We'll see you at EcoFest!
