A community meeting is scheduled for June 24 in Perry Hall to discuss ways to protect local streams, Bird River and the Chesapeake Bay.
The meeting is set to be held at the Perry Hall branch library from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. It will be the first of two public meetings about creating an action plan for the Bird River watershed.
"We want to engage people and find out their major goals for Bird River," Nathan Forand, a natural resource specialist with Baltimore County, said in a statement. "This is an opportunity for people and communities to partner with us to help the environment and enhance the health of the watershed."
Participants will be able to use a mapping tool called weTable to interactively flag areas of concern.
The watershed includes the communities of White Marsh, Perry Hall, Nottingham, Chase, Carney and Fullerton.
