From My Backyard to Our Bay
Increasing populations of suburban residents enjoy many amenities in Cecil County. The County provides good schools, road systems, fire and police protection, scout camps, places of worship, shopping, and easy access to Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Wilmington. Residents also enjoy natural resources in their backyards, the vast shores of the Chesapeake Bay, State parks, and the rural/agricultural areas that constitute most of the County.
From My Backyard to Our Bay illustrates the collective impact of human activity on natural resources. The way that you care for our natural resources affects your property, your neighborhood, your watershed, and our Chesapeake Bay. This guide offers tips on many environmental issues and provides a list of resources for more information. It is the hope of the Cecil Soil Conservation District that this booklet inspires a conservation and stewardship ethic in all residents of Cecil County.
