about south river federation

The Federation was very pleased that Sandy Spring Bank came out on April 15th for a community service day with us.  Not only are they a sponsor of our South River on the Half Shell Auction, but are the bank we use as well. The energetic team installed native plants at our newly restored coastal plain outfall by Hillsmere Shore's kayak launch. Now after storms, instead of the water eroding the gulley and dumping sediment in the creek, the water will be slowed down, cooled off, and filtered by our sand and gravel step pools filled with wonderful wetland plants!  We appreciate the Hillsmere Shores Community partnering with us on so many demonstration projects in their neighborhood! A big thank you also goes to the Chesapeake Bay Trust and Anne Arundel County's Watershed Protection and Restoration Program for funding the project. To view Facebook photos, click here.
