From planting a single tree to growing oysters or installing a multi-acre wetland, every restoration project helps return our watershed and the Chester River to a healthy state. At CRA, we work with technical experts, local governments, and landowners to implement strategic restoration projects throughout our watershed. 

Some recent accomplishments include:

  • planting over 10,000 native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers 
  • growing 200,000 oysters for sanctuaries in Langford Bay and Kent Island
  • installing living shorelines on the banks of the Chester River
  • installing wetlands and native habitat as part of the Natural Lands Project

If you are interested in implementing a restoration project at your home, farm, or business, please contact CRA Watershed Manager Tim Trumbauer (
