Back Creek Conservancy

The Back Creek Conservancy improves, conserves, and speaks for Annapolis’s Back Creek and its watershed, to make it a healthier place to live, work, and play in harmony with nature. Annapolis is the center of Maryland’s recreational boating scene and is known as America’s Sailing Capital. Polluted waterways cannot coexist with this vision of Annapolis. The conservancy promotes citizen advocacy on behalf of the waterways to improve water quality. Conventional wisdom has it that 1,500 recreational vessels are stored or moored in the Back Creek. This is a great challenge and opportunity for Green boating education, maintaining Annapolis as a world-class yachting destination with the economic benefits that brings.

St. Luke's Restoration of Nature

In 2017, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church will begin construction on a comprehensive watershed restoration initiative on Back Creek. The project will follow Chesapeake Bay Program guidelines and use nature’s own technology to clean and filter 28 acres of urban stormwater runoff that currently flows directly into the creek through a municipal pipe system. Components of the project include curb cuts, native trees and plants, a regenerative stream channel, wetlands, tidal marsh, and a living shoreline, all of which will aid in restoring the health of the Bay. The final result will be a restored ecosystem that reduces pollution and sediment entering the creek, provides abundant food and shelter for wildlife, and creates quality green space for the community, including an environmental education campus for teaching stewardship of creation.
