As part of the Chesapeake Conservation Corps experience, a handful of corps-members wrote an application to host an All Hands on Deck project at their host site. For an All Hands on Deck, the corps-members spend the day at one corps-member's host site. Usually, there is a lecture, a service project, and a bit of fun. For our most recent AHoD, we visited Kathy Thornton, a Howard County native, at Adkins Arboretum, where we were absorbed an informative lecture by Claudia West about sustainable landscaping before we planted the entrance garden to the arboretum and canoed around Lake Tuckahoe.
