If you’ve ever wondered what contributes to the park’s lawn staying in such good shape despite its use, the Maryland Pesticide Education Network is here with the answer. The park staff use an organic land care program, meaning it’s free of pesticides. That not only keeps toxins away from the people who use the park, but also the Bay — which borders the park and provides the great views.

On Saturday, August 15, the Network is hosting a celebration to official designate Canton Waterfront as the first organic park in the city. It’s joined by the State House in Annapolis as one of only a couple such sites in the state.

Along with educational info about the park’s care program, the Saturday event will have kayaking, canoeing, and plant giveaways.
