Just Released Report on 2010 South River Greenway Activities!
What is the South River Greenway?
The South River Greenway is a public/private partnership to preserve land in the headwaters of the South River. A portion of the preserved land will be privately held and a portion will provide passive recreation opportunities such as hiking on publicly-owned natural areas. The Greenway is roughly bounded by General's Highway on the east, Rt. 3 on the north, Davidsonville Rd. on the west, and Rt. 50 on the south. The heart of the Greenway is a wooded 630-acre parcel that has been acquired by Anne Arundel County for use as a public park with hiking trails. This park is known as the Bacon Ridge Natural Area.
The South River Greenway includes two of the largest forested tracts remaining in Anne Arundel County. One hundred miles of streams in four distinct watersheds (Bacon Ridge Branch, Broad Creek, North River, Tarnans Branch) flow through the Greenway into the South River. Land use includes farms, subdivisions extensive wetlands, and several thousand acres of undisturbed forests which provide vital protection to the South River, and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay.
The South River Greenway project has components of land protection, habitat assessment, habitat restoration, and community outreach.
