Ruth Eisenhour opened the padlock on the top of a wooden structure, swiped away some ants on its ledge and slid down into the crate-like contraption. She squatted and lopped off a couple branches of the blooming turtlehead plant. "This is the host plant for the Baltimore checkerspot butterflies," she said, holding a flower in the palm of her hand. "They are becoming more and more scarce, which means the checkerspots have no place to lay their eggs. And therefore their population is decreasing."

Reginald V. Truitt was a zoologist at the University of Maryland and a pioneer in scientific studies to better understand and protect the precious resources of the Chesapeake Bay. In 1925, Truitt founded the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory in Solomons, which became the foundation for what is now the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES). It is truly fitting that UMCES has a prestigious environmental award in his name, but what would Truitt think of the most recent award winner?

As a longtime Bel Air resident, Stephanie Hau is determined to help improve Harford County. As a geologist, she is fascinated by applying geographic data to help local jurisdictions better plan and build. Chesapeake Environmental Management, the company she started with her husband in 1993, does both. CEM, which was recently named the fastest-growing woman-owned business in the Baltimore region, has a mission to “apply practical science to improve communities.” CEM projects “run the gamut of all kinds of data collection, data analysis and presenting data in a meaningful way,” says Hau. When a state agency wants to develop a water system, for example, CEM helps the staff evaluate existing data to create the most efficient, effective system.

ALTHOUGH THE NEW $44 million Environmental Science Center laboratory complex at Fort George G. Meade will not be ready until late next year, area civic leaders have been given a preview of the future. They like it."It's an asset to the base and community," said Glenn Akers, president of the Greater Odenton Improvement Association, after he and other activists were briefed on the 140,000-square-foot complex last month. The location of this Environmental Protection Agency installation at Fort Meade underscores the changes taking place at the base in western Anne Arundel County now that it no longer is headquarters for the First U.S. Army.
