Extractions: Most successful schoolyard habitat programs have strong support from citizens, businesses, organizations and government agencies. Community support comes in many forms including funding, technical help, equipment, expert labor, materials and more. This list provides ideas of where to ask for help in your community. The links page provides several additional agency and organization contacts. Businesses. Local businesses have been very supportive of habitat/outdoor projects. A few examples of businesses that have helped schools with these projects include: Construction contractors (Excavation contractors can be especially helpful with wetland projects), environmental consultants, food establishments, hardware stores and home centers, landscape contractors, landscape architects, nurseries and others.

Extractions: The first step was to reenergize the Federation of South River Associations, who in the early 1990s had successfully abated development projects threatening critical areas within the watershed. The second task was to continue the success of the Friends of College Creek by incorporating the other creeks in the Annapolis area through outreach projects and education. As a testament to the energy of the Lower Western Shore Team, every objective identified in the previous year was successfully completed, often exceeding initial expectations. Through their efforts, the Team set a high standard in continuing their commitment to restoring each local waterway to a healthy, resilient ecosystem. Once established, the SRF exceeded all preliminary expectations. Well over 30 members attend monthly meetings, and the four workgroups meet monthly outside of the SRF meetings. Finally, several implementation projects were planned and completed over the summer and fall; including a half-dozen shore grass plantings, three submerged aquatic vegetation plantings, and a complete watershed assessment with SOS. Lastly, the SRF was also awarded Tributary Team grant funds for a shore erosion control project at Quiet Waters Park.

Extractions: Inspecting your plants on a regular basis is essential to identifying and evaluating plant problems in their early stages. You can then determine what, if any, action should be taken to control these problems. To effectively monitor the health of landscape plants, you must be able to identify the plants, their pests, and their diseases, and to understand how all of these are affected by the weather and by the environment. Professionals who are trained to do this are called Integrated Pest Management (IPM) scouts or Plant Health Care (PHC) technicians. Whether you attempt to develop these skills yourself or hire a professional to assist you, you will benefit from understanding the following components of monitoring your landscape plants. To determine the cause of a plant problem, you must be able to interpret any clues on the plant. Signs are a visible part of the cause of the problem, like insects, insect eggs or part of a fungus. Symptoms are abnormal changes in the plant which can result from disease or insect problems, an unsuitable growing environment, accidental herbicide exposure, or other conditions. Some symptoms of insect damage to plants are: discoloration or distortion of leaves, blossoms or twigs, chewing damage, cracked bark, and dieback of plant parts. The appearance of the damage is sometimes enough to identify the insect that caused it even if the actual insects are not seen. Some symptoms of plant diseases are: spots or dead areas on leaves or stems, abnormal growth or coloration, and sudden wilting.
Sphaeropsis (Diplodia) Tip Blight Of Pines the vicinity. Material for this fact sheet was supplied by Ethel Dutky,coop. ext. service (University of maryland). Caution The http://ag.udel.edu/extension/information/pp/pp-03.htm
Extractions: Sphaeropsis (Diplodia) Tip Blight Of Pines PP - 03 Mature two and three needle pines may be seriously damaged by this tip blight disease, caused by the fungus Sphaeropsis sapinae formerly Diplodia pinea . Austrian (Pinus nigra) and Scots ( P. sylvestris ) pines are most frequently seen infected in Delaware. Mugo , Red, Scrub and Japanese black pines are also commonly infected. The disease is widespread and especially common on mature stressed exotic pines. It is rarely found on seedlings and young vigorous plants unless they are growing close to infected trees. The current season needles will brown and die in June-July, usually when they are 1/3 to 3/4 full size. The entire shoot is usually killed up to the second year wood. Symptoms usually are more extensive on lower branches, but may be scattered throughout the crown. Resin flow is often conspicuous on infected twigs. After several seasons of infection, branches may be disfigured with clubbed tips from repeated blighting of the new growth. Branches may eventually die as old needles drop and no new growth survives. Close examination of infected needles, twigs and cones will reveal numerous pin point sized flask-shaped black fruiting structures (pycnidia) erupting through the plant's surface. Look for these at the base of the needles under the sheath, on cone scales and on twigs. In wet weather, dark spore tendrils are exuded from pycnidia and spread by splashing rain, insects, birds or on tools. Spores are produced from early spring through late fall, in wet weather.
