Brandywine Local Civic and Community Association GBACA and North Keys Civic Association.

I wasn’t able to attend both Greater Baden Aquasco Community Association and Brandywine North Keys Civic Association meetings in there entirety, due to overlapping times.

In BNKCA meeting Community Officers Dixon and Diggs reported that a Mail Carrier was robbed several weeks ago by a B/M on foot in the area of Cherry Tree Crossing RD while in performance of her duties operating a mail truck, delivering mail. The suspect made off with undisclosed property and escaped on foot through the woods. K9 was unable to maintain a track. Report handled by Postal Police. No other crime reported for Brandywine area but the Marlton, Upper Marlboro area and Malcolm RD, Brandywine RD and Woodyard RD area in Clinton are troubled spots still.

Senator Michael Jackson was a guest speaker, he provided some highlights from the 90-Day General Assembly wrap up.

You may view the entire report below.

Fred Tutman was a quest speaker, the Patuxent Riverkeeper. Fred Tutman advised that in P. G. County the Members that sit on the MNCPPC Planning Board do not have to live in P. G. County unlike other Board Members in other jurisdiction that do. This should be addressed with the Maryland Legislation in the Senate and House, General Assembly.

He advised the Patuxent River receive a D – grade due to water runoff and discharge from Plants in Northern Maryland.

There are a few spots left for the Patuxent Riverkeeper, Summer Camp.

2023 Youth Mentoring Camp Schedule
Patuxent Riverkeeper wants to mentor young River “keepers”.

Join a unique youth experience next to the Patuxent River celebrating nature and the Patuxent ecosystem through a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural week-long experience! Welcoming children from all walks from ages 10-16 years old. Our special focus is on drawing environmental knowledge and wisdom from many walks—including indigenous, Africa-American, and other less served and less empowered communities. Our daily theme is “mentoring in nature” and we have recruited a team of skilled adult mentors to work with our kids who will learn to fish, navigate with a compass, tie knots, foraging for native plants, explore nature crafts, archeology, geology, drumming, yoga, backpacking, birding, wildlife tracking, and much more. Each day a new adventure, and new things to learn about being competent and at home in nature as well as good stewards too.
Camps run from 9am until 4pm Monday through Friday with three 2023 sessions:
June: 26th-30th
July: 17th-21st
August: July 31st- August 4th
