Dear ESA e-mail Folk,

      Hi there everyone!  This is Jocelyn, the current ESA Vice President and student representative for the new building being built on campus (Teachers Education and Technology Center).  I recently received this e-mail from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and since most of you currently live in Salisbury or used to live in Salisbury I thought that you would find this interesting and want to help out.  Please read the following and speak up for the environment! 

     Also I will need everyone’s support this upcoming semester as the ESA leads the Salisbury Campus in its effort to have green/environmentally friendly features implemented in the TETC (the new on-campus building that I mentioned above).  We want to set a standard for all future SU buildings…not only should buildings be more energy efficient and composed of environmentally sustainable materials, but also STUDENTS should be involved in the SU decision making process. We will be having a veggie potluck/TETC discussion on Friday January 28th 2005 at 6pm at the Philosophy House.  Bring a little veggie dish to share, and more importantly bring your ideas and environmental concerns!  Even if you have never attended an Environmental Students Association meeting before or if you are no longer a student but a concerned environmentally conscience citizen, we want you there on January 28th.  To make changes we need everyone’s help.  Please feel free to contact me at ja09871@students.salisbury.edu with any questions you may have.        

Thanks,

Jocelyn Andersen

      

Salisbury City Park's Beaverdam Creek Restoration Update

Fate of living shoreline proposal still unknown

 Many thanks to those who responded to the CBF Action Alert in November 2004 in support of “living shoreline” technology proposed to control soil erosion and create wildlife habitat along stream banks in Salisbury's City Park.

At a November public hearing, Salisbury City council representatives heard resounding support in favor of living shoreline as they reviewed alternatives to address erosion problems along the park’s Beaverdam Creek. The proposal calls for installing native plants and non-structural material to shore up stream banks and filter nitrogen pollution run-off while improving habitat for fish, waterfowl and other plants and animals.
 
After the November hearing, City Council members and representatives from the mayor’s office visited
Amos Garret Park and St. Johns College in Annapolis. CBF collaborated with partners at both locations in recent years, creating two models of living shoreline restoration that others can follow. The site visits were followed by lunch and a discussion with City of Annapolis representatives including Mayor Moyer, who assured the Salisbury visitors that a living shoreline is the right way to go, both aesthetically and environmentally.

Mayor Barrie Tighlman and members of the Salisbury City Council would like to hear more from citizens about their preferences for living shoreline over rip-rap, an alternative erosion control method involving large stones that provide little habit value or run-off control. Contact the Mayor’s Office directly at 410/548-3100 or sbymayor@ci.salisbury.md.us and let your public representatives know that you support living shoreline techniques. You can also reach Alan Girard in CBF’s Heart of the Chesapeake office in Salisbury at 410-543-1999 or agirard@cbf.org for more information.
