Chesapeake Bay Field Office Biologist Janet Norman led a group of enthusiastic December hikers through a guided exploration of an Annapolis, MD park that may play a central linkage in the South River Greenway efforts. The municipally-owned park is normally accessed by permit only with a monthly fee. Due to this restricted access, many of participants had not had the opportunity to explore the trails and wildlife habitats previously. Ms. Norman arranged the free hike, in conjunction with South River Greenway partner Scenic Rivers Land Trust, to inform residents about the wooded gem in their local area, and how it can link to other publically owned properties for extensive trail connections. Hikers were surprised to learn of 6 inch native mussels living in the park’s small stream.

 

The hike is part of the Chesapeake Bay Field Office’s efforts to connect people with nature and ensure the future of conservation.
