Park Service giving $1.4M to Chesapeake programs

ANNAPOLIS — The National Park Service says it is giving nearly $1.4 million to two dozen projects in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

The programs range from youth employment to stewardship, education, public access and trail development.

The park service’s Chesapeake Bay Office administers the Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Watertrails Network. The network comprises more than 160 parks, refuges, museums, sailing ships, trails and other sites related to the bay. The office also manages the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail and the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail.

The funding includes $115,000 for the Anacostia Kingfisher Water Trail in Bladensburg and $75,000 for access to the Susquehanna River Water Trail in Jersey Shore Borough, Pa. The Menokin Foundation in Warsaw, Va. is also being given $70,000 for Cat Point Creek public access.

    rephrase that. u.s. taxpayer gives 1.4 million dollars.
    and which part of my statement is incorrect? i love it when people/organizations try to blow smoke up my [butt].
    the chesapeake should have more money than fort knox by now with the assessed shit tax for past several years and an increase coming.
    i think there other priorities out there that need attention also and they need addressed, infrastructure,
    tax relief for a couple.
