SMALL GRANTS, BIG IMPACT!
The 15 grants awarded total $13,619 and provide funding for state parks across Maryland to collaborate with community partners to improve shoreline habitats, build interpretive displays, renovate trails and campgrounds, create pollinator gardens, and more.
During times like these, we need our parks more than ever. Because of COVID, the use of state parks has increased dramatically. In addition to hosting more visitors than ever, parks face increased challenges from a changing climate and diminished budgets.
