Partners for Open Space is launching a social media campaign to generate statewide support for Maryland’s parks, nature, outdoor spaces, as well as its rural and historic heritage, all with a strong nod toward Maryland’s Program Open Space.
Did you know? Visitors of Hispanic descent are one of the fastest-growing and biggest user groups to Maryland’s state parks. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources and other agencies like the Chesapeake Conservancy are creating new connections between Maryland’s Latinx communities and the state’s historic and natural resources.
Maryland State Parks has created their Es Mi Parque program to better connect a large and growing number of Latino visitors to the cultural, recreational and historic resources of Maryland. In partnership, Preservation Maryland will produce a series of brief park histories in English and Spanish, including Catoctin Furnace at Cunningham Falls State Park and the following history of Patapsco Valley State Park.
