Support Environmental Concern
with Your Gift or Contribution

Environmental Concern has been constructing and restoring, growing plants, and educating
 - all about wetlands since 1972.

With your support:

  • Wetland plants prevent erosion, stop pollutants from entering the waterways and provide habitat for native species. We planted over 400,000 wetland plants by hand for restoration projects that we completed in 2017. The habitat will offer protection and food sources for Black ducks, Mallards, Diamond Back turtles, Monarch butterflies, and hundreds of species of creatures that share our surroundings.

  • EC Educators presented programs that peaked students’ interest in the animals and plants that thrive in ecosystems. We visited over 20 local schools, working on activities with over 5,000 students that required clean little hands to get wet and muddy – we make learning fun.

  • The native plants that we grow at EC start from a single seed collected by our staff. Each specie requires a different cleaning and preparation procedure. When the seed is ready for planting, every pot is filled by hand with a potting mix (secret EC recipe), and the seeds are placed in the pot. From there the pots are moved into the greenhouses where they begin to germinate and reach for the sun on warm spring days. Approximately 8 weeks later, they are ready to be delivered to their forever home.   We collected millions of seeds by hand in 2017.

Please consider making a donation to support our Hands-On-Wetlands goals in 2018.

For a contribution of $150, you will receive a “Mini Monarch Garden”  in the spring. $50 covers the plants and potting materials. $100 is tax deductible.

You have the option of giving the “Garden” as a gift, or keeping it for your own use. The “Gardens” may be picked up in the spring, or EC will deliver in Talbot, Dorchester and Queen Anne’s County.

The 10-inch ceramic pot “Garden” will be planted with 5 plugs (all pollinator plants) that will grow throughout the spring and summer season to a size that fills the pot.

If you are purchasing the “Garden” as a gift, we will send a card to you, and to the person who will be receiving the gift.

The contribution will support our Mid-Atlantic Monarch Initiative. (The picture is a large “Mega” Monarch Garden”, a larger version of the “Mini” garden).
