Calvert County Master Gardener Bay-Wise Program

Calvert County is a long, narrow peninsula bordered on the West by the Patuxent River and by the Chesapeake Bay on the East. Our residents live within a mile or less of a shoreline or a tributary that flows directly into the River or the Bay. How we maintain our own landscapes affects the health of our local waterways, the Chesapeake Bay, our citizens and our environment. If we all change a few simple landscape practices, we can help keep Calvert and Maryland communities healthy.
