The Severn River Association (SRA) has won a grant from the Chesapeake Bay Trust to install bilingual signage at Jonas Green Park, according to the Friends of Anne Arundel Countys Trails July edition of Trail Talk newsletter.
Working with the Friends of Anne Arundel County Trails and the county Department of Recreation and Parks, interpretive signs will be installed explaining the educational benefits of the park’s three rain gardens, its newly installed nitrogen reduction project, the stormwater pond and the living shoreline, according to the newsletter.
Anne Arundel Community College students are documenting each feature in both English and Spanish. The text and graphic design will be done by a professional graphics artist.
Excerpt from the newsletter:
The Friends would like to extend a special thanks to Bob Whitcomb, past president of the SRA, for spearheading this effort. The many patrons of the park will have a better understanding of the unique nature of this waterfront spot through his efforts.
The Friends would also like to thank Dinny White who led the effort for the entire SRA for their generous donation for five crape myrtles in the upper parking area. Once the crape myrtles are established, they will provide additional shade, texture and color to this heretofore open space.
