They are cycling for the environment, participating in a week-long summer environmental project to fight erosion along Wye Island."This is really a student-run project," Broadneck Environmental Science teacher Patricia Niedhardt said.

WYE ISLAND-- --Ava Worrell leans over and makes a confession. "I'm having steering issues," says the Baltimore resident. "I keep going this way and that." But given the stiff breeze churning up mini-white caps around this Eastern Shore island, it's no surprise. And let's face it, when you're learning the strokes to paddle a kayak, this way and that is a darn sight better than upside down and backward. Luckily Worrell is not alone this bright Saturday morning. Ten women are bobbing alongside her in a protected cove, learning how to get their plastic boats to stop, go and track in a straight line.

Leland C. Brendsel, who made millions helping average people realize the American dream of homeownership, is living the dream in one of the most exclusive and historically significant properties on Maryland's Eastern Shore. The property, called Wye Hall, was owned by William Paca, a leader in the American Revolution, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and Maryland's third governor. Historians say the Paca home burned in 1879, but the Brendsels' home - built in the early 1930s - sits roughly on the footprint of Paca's original house.

AT HIS DEATH this week, James W. Rouse, the visionary developer, was justly remembered for Columbia, Mondawmin, Harborplace -- all the places he successfully built or revitalized.It is one of his failures, however, a project he was not allowed to do, that I love most.At the same time, some 25 years since Rouse lost the battle of Wye Island, I still have mixed feelings about whether the developer's defeat was anyone's win.The island, 2,800 acres of tall old forest, farm fields, hedgerows and deep-water coves incised on a 40-mile shoreline, remains today the jewel of the Eastern Shore that it was in the early 1970s, when Jim Rouse unveiled his plans for it to a skeptical board of Queen Anne's County commissioners.

The bad news for quail hunters in the state is that the severe weather of last winter and the wet summer months probably will have numbers of the birds in the state at low levels this hunting season.The good news is that the Department of Natural Resources has initiated a multi-year program designed to learn more about ways to help bobwhite quail."Bobwhite quail populations throughout the eastern United States have been declining in recent years," said DNR Secretary John R. Griffin. "One of the primary factors contributing to this decline has been a decrease in the availability of quality quail habitat."
