The Chesapeake Watershed: A Sense of Place and a Call to Action is described as a must read for anyone living in the 6 state region that drains into the Chesapeake Bay.
Written by local author and environmental scientist Ned Tillman, the book makes a case that residents have an important role to play in restoring the watershed.
Tillman, who is Chairman of the Howard County Environmental Sustainability Board and is past chair of the Howard County Conservancy, says he wrote the book to engage, inform, and offer suggestions to all of us on how we can help restore a healthy balance between mankind and the rest of the earth.
The book is being used in high schools and colleges, and by land trusts, nature centers, and other non-profits.
Tillman is particularly pleased to see industry and the government sectors also responding to the message:
“We are all in this together and I am hoping this book becomes a good tool to help inform and stimulate us all to take the actions we need to restore the bay and the ecosystems that we have come to rely upon.”
