Volunteers are an important resource in helping to preserve and maintain the Middle Patuxuent Environmental Area.  For example, volunteers assist Howard County's Department of Parks and Recreation staff in maintaining trails and locating and removing non-native invasive species. 

To learn more about volunteer activities or needs in the MPEA, contact Jeff Claffy, Assistant Natural Resources Manager, at jclaffy@howardcountymd.gov

The Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks Website has a page for Volunteer Opportunities with the Department.  The "MPEA Volunteer Programs" link at the bottom of that page will connect one to a "PDF" file of specific volunteer needs within the MPEA.
