Adkins Arboretum - An Ecological and Interpretive Gateway

block Adkins Arboretum

Part of a larger plan to create a dramatic entrance over seven acres on this 25-year-old arboretum on Maryland's Eastern Shore, this project will model the best in Bay-friendly stewardship practices while communicating to arriving visitors a commitment to conservation and the feeling of an authentic Chesapeake place. Currently, arboretum visitors park in a paved lot that drains stormwater underground into a tributary of the Choptank River. That parking area will be transformed into a native meadow and garden dotted with plant identifications and interpretive displays. A new low-impact parking area will be added, topped with pervious material and surrounded by a natural system of stormwater drainage.

Amount Funded: $120,000.00

Start Date: 09/15/2005
