Earth Day is just not enough at Asbury Solomons; we celebrate Earth Month!
For the fourth consecutive year, the resident-run Go Green Committee has hosted Earth Stewardship Month during April. This year’s events included bringing in local experts to speak on a variety of conservation-related topics, a beach clean-up day on Asbury Solomons’ Patuxent River shoreline, an educational session on our Oyster Garden program – which has added more than 1 million water-filtering oysters to our river – and culminated in our now-annual Oyster Garden Benefit Dinner.
This year's lectures included, “Climate Change in the Chesapeake,” “The Owls of Battle Creek Nature Center,” “Nutrient Obesity of the Patuxent River,” and “Return of the Osprey.”
