River's Edge - Stevensville
River’s Edge Forest Play has partnered with Blunt Marsh Conservation Project to help kids experience the world of a real salt marsh. This site is simply beautiful with a large tree canopy to protect from the sun, lots of climbing and even an active eagle's nest.
Blunt Marsh Conservation Project (BMCP) is a private operating foundation dedicated to supporting conservation, scientific research and wildlife management on the Chesapeake Bay. BMCP conducts fundraisers and solicits donations to further research, conservation efforts and wildlife management in the middle Chesapeake Bay region and its tributaries. BMCP also provides access and support of private (not-for-profit) scientific research on Blunt Marsh, a 100-acre marshland at the confluence of Warehouse Creek and Cox Creek, just off the Chesapeake Bay. Focus areas of research include erosion control, wildlife management, water quality and control of phragmites, a fast-growing, invasive grass species whose toxins destroy neighboring wetland plants.
BMCP hosts two major fundraising events each year, a crab feast and a hoedown, where corporations and attendees can provide donations and participate in educational awareness and social gatherings with other conservation-minded individuals.
