Planning Board's Environmental Guidelines Leave Ten Mile Creek Wetlands Out to Dry– Take Action Now!
The Montgomery County Planning Board will vote on its draft Environmental Guidelines in early-July. The Planning Board’s draft misreads the Montgomery County Council’s unanimous Resolution on Ten Mile Creek. The Planning Board is mistakenly including 50 foot buffers for wetlands in Ten Mile Creek, when the Council Resolution plainly calls for 200 foot buffers. Take Action Now!
Maine: Fall Migration Featuring Monhegan Island
Enjoy fall migration at one of New England's best-known migratory hotspots, Monhegan Island, located off the coast of central Maine. We spend three nights on Monhegan, watching for migratory songbirds, raptors, waterfowl, monarch butterflies and more. All travel on Monhegan is by foot, so this is the perfect trip for those who love to walk. The ferry ride to and from Monhegan crosses waters where shearwaters, alcids and marine mammals might be seen. Our trip also visits outstanding natural areas on the mainland. Join trip leader David Farner September 17-22, 2014. Learn more and register.
