🌧Happy Wednesday🌧
We want to share with you the exciting news that Harford Streams has been partnering with USGS to help run the rain gages in Harford County!
The rain gage was created in 1441 for agricultural purposes and is still one of the most necessary instruments for weather measurements today! Rain gages today help to measure weather patterns and help to monitor hazardous conditions like floods and droughts!

Another property preserved! Thanks to Edward Pitts, and his family, for choosing to preserve 43 acres of forest at the southern end of Patterson Mill Road near Emmorton. The Pitts family donated a permanent conservation easement to HLT and the Maryland Environmental Trust.

Every property and landowner are unique but every conservation story starts the same way – it begins with a landowner who chooses to protect their land, forever.
