Not all that's green is good in every neighborhood
And typically much is a thicket.
We send the men in first to hack down all the worst
And let goats devour what's left.


Friends - this is one stanza from a 4-minute poem that comprised our "lightning talk" at last week's Maryland Land Trust Conference in Reisterstown. In the spirit of Dr. Seuss, we aimed to tell our colleagues from mostly rural land trusts around the State about the challenges and opportunities inside the URDL in Baltimore County and the nature of our work.

We're going to celebrate that work next Wed., June 21 from 6 to 8 PM at the ribbon-cutting for Adelaide Bentley Park in Towson.  We're pitching a large tent on site and you can park conveniently next door, courtesy of Stanley Black and Decker.  So, rain or shine, come drink some wine and celebrate with us at this new park in Towson!

We also plan to unveil a new program to preserve the tree canopy inside the URDL, the Donald C. Outen Urban Tree Society. Another reason to come is to celebrate the work of this wonderful man!
