Coronavirus Time and Nature

  • Host an individual clean-up, which is just what it sounds like: you and family members getting some daily exercise with a pair of gloves, a trash bag, and whatever patch of the Corsica watershed means the most to you. One local group, Help Clean Up Our Earth, is holding socially distanced and appropriately masked events with pick-ups by the county.  Send an email to helpcleanupourearth@gmail.com to be notified of their future events or to suggest an area in need of cleaning up.  You can also gather and deposit glass, paper, cardboard, cans, and plastic bottle recyclables in our Queen Anne’s County igloos. For locations, visit https://www.qac.org/DocumentCenter/View/742/Midshore-Recycling-Guide-PDF?bidId=
