If you missed the members' meeting, you missed State Senator James Brochin's comments
about land preservation issues across the state. You didn't hear Vanessa Beauchamp,
Associate Professor and plant ecologist at Towson University, talk about riparian buffers
and the threat that wavyleaf basketgrass poses to our area. You missed John Canoles,
principal at Eco-Science Professionals, Inc.,, who spoke about the importance of old fields
as wildlife habitat. And you didn't see H. Turney McKnight accept our Sergeant Murphy
Award for land preservation.
Vanessa Beauchamp and John Canoles H. Turney McKnight with Henry Pitts,
president of The Manor Conservancy
