Urban Waters Federal Partnership
The Urban Waters Federal Partnership (UWFP) seeks to reconnect urban
communities, particularly those that are overburdened or economically
distressed, with their waterways by building collaboration among federal
agencies, state and local agencies and community-led efforts to promote
economic, environmental and social benefits. SavATree is proud to be apart of this initiative.
Baltimore, Maryland: SavATree provides project support to the U.S. Forest
Service Northern Research Station, serving as Ambassador to the Baltimore
Urban Waters Partnership. This partnership works with federal, state, local,
NGO, and private partners to help improve water quality in Baltimore.
SavATree integrates and advances the primary elements of the Baltimore
Urban Waters Partnership business plan through:
1) The Green Pattern Book, a set of typologies of green infrastructure projects
2) Local Projects
and Monitoring, including water quality, collaboration network, and land cover
4) Mapping of local projects using green infrastructure along
with monitoring and collaborative networks.
These are contextualized within
a framework of outreach, education, adaptive management, and workforce
SavATree also facilitates linkages between the Baltimore Urban Waters
Partnership and other agency efforts in Baltimore such as the Baltimore
Ecosystem Study, a long-term ecological research project of the National
Science Foundation, and the Baltimore Wood Project, a joint effort between the
Forest Products Lab and the Northern Research Station.
