Bosely Conservancy cleanup

Scout troops and other volunteer organizations are invited to participate in the Bosely Conservancy cleanup March 23. (March 14, 2013)

The Bosely Conservancy is part of the Otter Point Creek Component of the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Maryland. Join members of the Izaak Walton League and volunteers with Harford County Parks and Recreation and the Chesapeake Bay Reserve to keep the marsh beautiful on its 22nd annual cleanup day coming next weekend.

The cleanup day is scheduled Saturday, March 23, from 9 a.m. to noon, rain or shine, at the conservancy. Volunteers should meet at the end of Perry Avenue in Edgewood at the entrance to the Bosely Conservancy.

Anyone ages 8 to adult are invited to help clean up and preserve the grounds. Volunteers ages 8 to 13 must be accompanied by an adult. Scout troops and other groups are welcome. Volunteer hours for schools or organizations are documented and it's a great community service credit, organizers said.

Volunteers are asked to wear old shoes or boots and bring gloves.

Registration is required. Drinks are provided for the event.

The Bosely Conservancy is owned by the Harford County Chapter of The Izaak Walton League of America.
