An environmental watchdog group that wants to clean up and preserve Sawmill Creek will meet Monday with a representative from the county Department of Recreation and Parks.
The newly revived Sawmill Creek Park Association has invited Jack Keene, the department's chief of planning and construction, to speak at the 7:30 p.m. meeting at the Glen Burnie Improvement Association headquarters on Crain Highway.
Keene, who supervises park planning and county programs such as Project Open Space, will answer questions about the 13.7-mile creek and its tributaries.
The Glen Burnie environmental group, which was active in the late 1970s, has been reorganized by former state Sen. Al Lipin. The neighborhood activist hopes to persuade the new county administration to buy more parkland along Sawmill Creek and better protect the watershed.
