Visitors of Hispanic descent are one of the fastest growing and biggest user groups to Maryland’s state parks. There is now a staffed agency wide program called Es Mi Parque – This is My Park – to better connect the Maryland State Parks to the growing user group. Los visitantes de ascendencia hispana son uno de los grupos de usuarios más grandes y de crecimiento más rápido en los parques estatales de Maryland. Ahora hay un programa proveído por personal de toda la agencia llamado Es Mi Parque para conectar mejor los parques estatales de Maryland a este creciente grupo de usuarios.
Historic development often clustered near abundant natural resources like forests and water and now that many of those traditional paths are using for recreation, historic sites can be connected by walking, kayaking and/or biking! These connections and opportunities were explored during an expert panel at the Old Line State Summit held by Preservation Maryland.
As part of a year-long initiative to support the historic resources within Maryland State Parks, Preservation Maryland has teamed up with the Department of Natural Resources to document some of those most historic and unique properties in the State Parks. Recently, a team went to the Hornbaker House at Fort Frederick State Park.
