Chesapeake Bay Watershed Champion: Kelly Gutshall, Landstudies, Inc.

The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay Friday announced it will recognize Kelly Gutshall, landscape architect and owner/president of LandStudies, Inc. in Lititz, Lancaster County, as one of its Watershed Champion award winners.

Gutshall is known for her creative designs and cutting edge approaches in sustainable site planning, stormwater management, and developments that maximize watershed protection.

She has designed and implemented numerous award-winning projects and is recognized for sharing her passion, knowledge, experience, and the collaborative spirit she brings to her innovative work with communities, local governments and nonprofits.

Alliance Director Al Todd shared, "Kelly, and LandStudies the firm she has built, demonstrate that you can merge planning for development and environmental restoration.  Kelly is also a strong advocate and educator in the principles of environmental site design.  We need more like her to succeed in restoring the Chesapeake Bay watershed." 

Gutshall acknowledged, “Each of us has a responsibility, an obligation really, to improve the environment. It takes all of us — businesses, government and individual citizens — working together to improve the environment for future generations. That’s really what LandStudies is about. We develop solutions and pull together the right entities to improve the health of our land and waterways, and we do it in ways that are practical and benefit businesses and the environment.”

The award will be presented at the Alliance’s annual gala The Taste of the Chesapeake on September 15 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Rooftop Conference Center of the Belcher Pavilion of the Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, Maryland.
