Forty projects in the Chesapeake Bay watershed received $9.2 million in grants from the Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund, which is administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF). The Town of Bath was awarded $50,000.00 as part of the Small Watershed Grants (SWG) Program. Warm Springs Watershed Association is listed as one of the partners in the grant proposal. The general goal of the SWG program is to help nonprofit organizations and local governments to improve the condition of their local watershed.
Entitled Pushing Up Daisies, the grant proposal outlined various green best management practices to be installed to reduce erosion in Greenwood Cemetery. The end goal of the project is to reduce sedimentation as well as the deposition of nitrogen in Warm Springs Run.
