Masonville Cove

The Bay Journal‘s Rona Kobell writes about the rebirth of Masonville Cove, once a dumping ground and now turned into one of only 10 Urban Wildlife Refuges in the nation by the Port of Baltimore. MDE oversaw the environmental cleanup of the property, which was a destination for trash and debris going back to the time of the Great Baltimore Fire. The cleanup was described in a 2012 eMDE article.

Just last week, MDE employees participated in a Day to Serve event at the site, where volunteers picked up trash and planted grasses. 2013Sep19_2224
