Thanks for posting the Web site and the petition.

We're currently organizing work parties on weekends while the weather holds out, then planning a big work party in the spring to do what is left. There is already a lot of improvement, but we can still use your help!

If you live near Elkridge, Maryland then come by on the weekends and help us clean, and also spread the word. If you don't live nearby then please just spread the word of our efforts and get people to sign the petition. Everyone's voice should be heard in this matter!
