When: Thursday, March 20 from 10 to 11 a.m. Where: Tracys Landing Park & Ride Who: Open to the Public Contact: 410-514-7905
The Maryland Environmental Trust (MET) invites volunteers to help beautify a portion of Solomons Island Road in southern Anne Arundel County in an upcoming Adopt a Highway clean-up. MET “adopted” the nearly one-mile stretch of scenic byway last year and has pledged to keep it litter-free.
“Grab your friends and family to join fellow community members and MET staff as we work to beautify our lands and protect our waterways while having fun outside,” said Wendy Stringfellow, MET communications and development coordinator.
Volunteers will meet at the Tracys Landing Park and Ride ─ directions here dropdown Anne Arundel – MD 2 @ MD 258 (Bay Front Rd). The clean-up will take approximately one hour. Afterward, volunteers are invited to meet for a lunch provided by MET at Honey’s Harvest Market and Deli, 150 Lake Shore Drive, Rose Haven.
Preregistration and training (a five minute video) are required to participate. To sign up, please contact Stringfellow by March 13 at 410-514-7905 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Maryland Environmental Trust was established in 1967 by the Maryland General Assembly as a charitable organization that serves as the statewide land trust. MET currently holds more than 1,070 easements totaling approximately 131,500 acres. Governed by a citizen board of trustees, MET is affiliated with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and promotes the permanent protection of land through its Conservation Easement, Stewardship and Land Trust Assistance programs. MET also provides grants to environmental education projects through the Keep Maryland Beautiful program.
