Riparian forest restoration started in earnest in the Chesapeake watershed about 1996. On this page, we have begun to weave together the stories of how partners have restored over 8,000 miles of riparian forest since that time. Here you can find out who, how, why, and what resulted? The projects are also mapped on the homepage with stars. We will continue to gather stories, so be sure to check back to see what’s new.
A partnership in Carroll County between Maryland Forest Service, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency, Maryland Department of Agriculture, and Carroll County Soil Conservation District has shown that good collaboration among partners can help to radically improve the rate of forest buffer restoration.
