Ariel Woodworth was part of the Harford County Master Watershed Stewards Academy class that graduated in October 2020. Ariel installed her capstone project at the Churchville-Level Building of Harford County Parks and Recreation. The project is a conservation landscape garden in the front of the recreation center in order to showcase the beautiful native plants one can utilize to feed pollinators, treat stormwater, stop erosion, and still exhibit a beautiful garden.
Ariel removed the non-native plants at the site and planted 15 native plants. The winterberry shrubs, sweetbay magnolia tree, swamp milkweed, purple coneflower, and blue false indigo will grow into beautiful flowering sources of food and habitat for local wildlife and advertise conservation landscaping to all who use the recreation center!
