Maryland’s Department of Natural Resources is finalizing it’s 2020 master plan which includes restoration, possible Recreational trails, kayak launch additions, and even monitoring rare butterflies.

“These are public lands. They belong to the citizens of Maryland and so your tax dollars pay for this and my job I get to manage it so I like to think, what would I like to see on my land, so we want to hear what other people want to see on the land and more importantly would like to see more people come out,” explains Mike Schofield, Forest Manager.

They’re asking for the public’s input until February 22nd. You can head to Maryland DNR’s website for more information.
