By replacing existing impervious surfaces and incorporating pervious pavers into new construction, communities can reduce the footprint they leave on the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Butterfly-Weed is native to the Chesapeake Bay and has bright orange flowers and a long bloom time making it an attractive plant to have around the garden. Not to mention, their nectar attracts butterflies!

It’s easy to gradually shift to using native species in your yard. You can start by using natives, like fragrant sumac, to replace dead or dying non-native plants, and remove existing invasive species. #giveplantsachance #runoffbusters http://buff.ly/212aIpg
