Gene Piotrowski Memorial Grove
Starting this fall work will be occurring on Mill Creek Lane at Myrtle Point Park. Land will be prepared near the end before reaching the creek on the left side. This area of tangled vines and small shrubs has a mix of invasive plants that is making it difficult for native species to prosper. Clearing these will allow native species the opportunity to thrive and a variety of native shrubs and trees have been selected for planting.

Using trees from the Department of Natural Resources program Treemendous Maryland, a group of native trees and shrubs was picked and a plan drawn up. Below are two pages from the Forest Management Plan that show the conceptualization of the memorial grove. We envision it as a place to reflect on and be a part of the natural environment.

Owl Prowl
Friday, December 6 and 13, 2013
8 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Join us in our annual attempts to find owls at the Park. We have three species that nest and live year round in our area. All three have been heard or seen at the Park. An owl prowl is an attempt to lure a bird to respond and possibly show itself by playing calls, with a mechanical device, (kind of like a duck call) or by using your voice. We ask that people dress in quiet clothes (please no snow suits) bring a flash light, and be prepared to stand around for a while and really listen to what is going on around you.
