DEEP CREEK WATERSHED FOUNDATION SPONSORS WATER-WISE TRAINING

In a first beyond the Chesapeake Bay, the Deep Creek Watershed Foundation has partnered with Garrett County to fund Water-Wise training by the University of Maryland Extension in a program exclusive to Garrett County.  

Water-Wise is a conservation landscape certification program to help residents improve the quality and quantity of water runoff here in Garrett County.  Thirteen people, 11 Master Gardeners and 2 Garden Club members, already have completed the three-day training necessary to manage the Water-Wise landscape certifications, and now are looking for properties whose owners are eager to participate in the program.
