2022 MPEA Conservation Stewardship Projects
Howard County Rec & Parks -

Description

2022 MPEA Conservation Stewardship Projects | Various Dates/Locations | 9-11:30am | Ages 18+ (or 13-17 with guardian present)

*To Register, Follow the Links Below*

The Middle Patuxent Environmental Area Conservation Stewardship Project (MPEA CSP) addresses the issue of invasive exotic plant species in Howard County Recreation & Parks' Middle Patuxent Environmental Area. Invasive exotic plants reduce native floral diversity by competing for sunlight, resources, and space, and offer poorer quality or insufficient food and habitat for native wildlife; they may also increase soil erosion and reduce water quality, or present a nuisance to visitors. During the CSP events, volunteers help combat this problem through the removal of invasive plants and the restoration of native, ecologically appropriate species. Each event also includes an educational component concerning the target species or area of the day.

The MPEA, established in 1996, is 1,021 acres in size and contains a diversity of habitat types. There are upland and bottomland hardwood forest, fields, wetlands, ponds and riparian habitats. The primary components of the MPEA's mission are natural resources management, education, research and recreation.

Registration is required. Participants should bring drinking water and wear long pants, sturdy closed-toe shoes, and any additional garb appropriate for the weather. Ticks, Poison Ivy, and stinging insects may be encountered. Tools provided.
