Message from Baltimore Ecosystem Study:

Find out about the biodiversity in your own backyard!

The Baltimore Ecosystem Study (BES) is looking for Baltimore neighborhood residents to participate in an investigation of biodiversity in residential yards. Researchers and students will be collecting information on plants, birds, insects, and soil in order to better understand how biodiversity changes with yard maintenance choices. We are interested in all types of yards (ie. rain gardens, turf, vegetable gardens, or no maintenance yards).

If you have a detached home in the Towson area and are interested in participating, please visit our survey for more information. If you decide to participate, please take the survey so that we can learn more about your yard. We look forward to working with you!
