Baltimore's harbor may be too funky for swimming or fishing, but maybe a little gardening can help. Students from two city schools and some adult volunteers gathered at the National Aquarium Tuesday to "plant" some oysters in the Inner Harbor - not for eating but to try to improve the health of the ailing water body. "This is the first time anyone has tried planting this number of oysters in the Inner Harbor," said Adam Lindquist, coordinator of the Healthy Harbor campaign, an ambitious initiative aimed at making the Northwest and Middle branches of the Patapsco River swimmable and fishable by 2020.

SCHOOL IS OPEN, and it's time to volunteer. Local schools offer possibilities to help them provide an excellent place to learn. Volunteering is a direct way to become involved with the community on a flexible schedule. It's a way to meet children of all ages and other adults. Older adults can reconnect with young people. Moms and dads can learn how their children's peers act among friends. Volunteer work can be a bridge to a career in education or related fields. Those interested in art or literature can volunteer in the art room or library.

The partnership for a Healthier Carroll County Inc. wants to see that change with the establishment of a youth board in Mount Airy. The Alliance Project, an initiative established by the private, nonprofit group, has been trying for eight months to recruit adult organizers and role models, with no luck. "We need active, invigorated adults that recognize the value of youth and also recognize the importance to provide opportunities for youth to grow and develop," said Lorelei LaFleur, administrative assistant for the alliance.
