Successful Community Outreach
On June 18, 2022, Howard County Watershed Steward candidates Janice Bennett and Amy Marshall held a community picnic at Southwick in Columbia.
The picnic provided the residents of Southwick with an opportunity to socialize with their neighbors while learning about the importance of cleaning up pet waste and the advantages using native plants in the home garden.
Janice and Amy wish to extend their gratitude to the Southwick Community Association for their support and continued commitment to protecting our local waterways.
They would also like to thank Master Steward Terry Matthews for all his help, sage advice, and for grilling the most delicious hamburgers and hotdogs, Master Steward Chris Price for sharing her invaluable knowledge while presenting the watershed model table, Master Steward Mike Calvert for making everyone feel so welcome and for taking photos at the picnic, and fellow Steward candidate Wendy Hall for donating native plants from her beautiful garden as door prize giveaways.
