Maryland Sea Grant Welcomes New Watershed Specialist
Eric Buehl is Maryland Sea Grant Extension's new watershed restoration specialist for the state's mid and upper Eastern Shore. He is working with communities, citizen groups, and governments to help improve water quality in the rivers and creeks that feed into the Chesapeake Bay. Buehl, who has lived on the Eastern Shore since 1989, will serve Maryland's Talbot, Caroline, Queen Anne's, Kent, and Cecil counties.
He joins the Extension program's team of five watershed restoration specialists, succeeding Dr. Amy Scaroni in the position. The specialists work to secure funding to install and monitor measures like rain gardens that capture nutrients from stormwater runoff.
