MNPS Fall Field Weekend

Come visit two invasives-removal success stories in Cape St Claire, Anne Arundel County! The sites are approximately 1.5 miles apart and both are easily accessed via a short walk from the respective parking areas.  Participants can visit one or both, in either order.

Volunteers will be available at both locations from 10 am to noon, to answer questions and lead participants through the conservation sites.

Little Magothy Beach Park - A small park in the community kayak rack and launch area leads to a little Magothy waterway, which leads in turn to the larger Magothy River.  Volunteers have been working for two years on clearing species such as Burning Bush, English Ivy, Oriental Bittersweet and others.  A walking path has been established through the middle, with several Leopold benches.  It has become a space for resting, reflecting and enjoying the sounds of nature.  There is a rain garden as well as a small shade garden.  The wooded area has been replanted with many native plants and more are added each spring and fall.

Serene Ravine - Another restored area in the community features a small spring fed stream leading to Lake Claire and into the Magothy River.  Volunteers have been working at this site since 2012 removing invasive plants using goats, hand pulling, herbicide, and replanting with native species.  Even more native plants have volunteered on their own in the space that was created for them.  The area also features a wood chipped path and Leopold benches.  Many migrating birds have been spotted and heard along the path.
