Input Accepted Through Sept. 15

Open outdoor space with marsh, trees and waterThe Maryland Department of Natural Resources is seeking public comment on the 15-year plan for the Cedar Point Wildlife Management Area. This 1,914-acre property is located in southwest Charles County, situated on a peninsula between Nanjemoy Creek and the Potomac River.

The Draft Management Plan was developed to establish long-term goals, and to maintain and manage public access for natural resource protection and outdoor recreation, including hunting and trapping. The draft plan addresses conserving, protecting and restoring sensitive wildlife habitats as well as creating and enhancing valuable habitat for game species.

“The vision plan is important because it provides current and future guidance on the long-term management of area,” Wildlife and Heritage Service Southern Region Manager David Heilmeier said. “Through this plan, we hope to enhance and protect essential habitat, unique and sensitive plant and animal communities, and wildlife while maintaining public access and recreational opportunities.”

The public may submit comments by mail (Maryland Department of Natural Resources – Wildlife and Heritage Service, 6904 Hallowing Lane, Prince Frederick, Maryland 20678); by email; or by calling 410-535-0282. Comments will be accepted through Sept. 15, 2017.
