Leopold Steps in to Save a Resource
Once again, venturing where the previous Administration failed to tread, Executive Leopold has requested that MDE deny a permit to a developer attempting to build in the bog protection area in Pasadena.
Bogs are ice-age relics that are generally nutrient poor environments where organic matter (i.e. peat) accretes, and serves as a high quality water filter. These rare natural resources are also home to some of the State's most endangered and threatened plant species, including several species of carnivorous plants.
Once again, Leopold wins serious kudos for stepping up to protect Anne Arundel County's environmental treasures.
