We are excited to announce that we have begun construction of two faith-based stormwater projects in the McElderry Park neighborhood in southeast Baltimore. These projects, located at the Prince of Peace Baptist Church and Amazing Grace Lutheran Church, will add significant green space to the community and substantially reduce stormwater runoff at the churches.
Construction at Amazing Grace is largely complete, as you can see in the photos below, and Ecotone, Inc. will be working at Prince of Peace during the next few weeks.
Once completed, the projects will also reduce stormwater utility fees for the congregations.
These projects are happening in partnership with the National Wildlife Federation and with funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
National Wildlife Federation is working feverishly to certify Baltimore as one of first Community Wildlife Habitats in the Chesapeake Bay region.
Keep your eyes out for the ribbon cuttings when the projects are planted in the spring.
