The WC is developing a trail maintenance plan to improve several frequently wet sections of East Wood trails. Several workdays will be scheduled during the late winter while the ground is cold and dry. A new Town Ordinance to clarify activities not permitted in the Woods Preserves, Town Parks, and other Town land was introduced at the December 2020 Town Council Meeting. A public hearing to receive any public comments is scheduled at the January 11, 2021 Town Council Meeting.
The volunteer Bow Hunter Firefighters of Maryland (BHFFMD) continue a Town-approved managed deer hunt in the East and West Woods. One doe was harvested in December in the East Woods. BHFFMD will resume bow hunting after the holidays in January 2021. The 2020-21 Maryland archery deer hunting season began, September 11, 2020 and will end January 30, 2021.
Please help us to preserve our forests for the enjoyment of current residents and future generations. We hope you continue to enjoy our Woods Preserves. The Woods Committee wishes all our friends and neighbors a healthy and happy New Year!
