Floating Wetlands in Baltimore

The recent news has been full of Chesapeake Bay cleanup efforts. We've seen Litter Cleanup and Rebounding Crab Populations. Now, a local middle school is joining the fight. They have installed 50 floating wetlands in front of the World Trade Center in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The roots of the plants will provide food for the fish that live in the Harbor. As stated in the article: “They’ll help clean the water, but we have a large body of water here, so more than anything they’re really an educational opportunity.” That may be true, but here's the way I see it -- Every little bit counts. Thanks kids!
