Maryland Opens Two New State Parks to Celebrate Earth Day

Two new Maryland state parks officially opened to the public last Friday, led by Lt. Gov. Boy Rutherford, to mark the celebration of Earth Day.

Rutherford went to both Bohemia River State Park in Chesapeake City and Cypress Branch State Park in Kent County for the opening events.

“Bohemia River and Cypress Branch are two great examples of how our state parks provide not only great resources for outdoor recreation but opportunities to learn about our state’s rich history and develop our local communities,” said Rutherford.

In 2017, 460 acres of land were bought to establish Bohemia River State Park in Cecil County. Park visitors can hike, view wildlife, fish, and hunt deer during specific seasons. The park will soon start kayaking and canoeing activities as well.

Meanwhile, the 314-acre Cypress Branch State Park near Millington will open with a picnic area and a 3-acre fishing pond. Plans are being discussed to restore a quail habitat and add more hiking trails.

This April, Maryland hospitals and healthcare workers can visit any state park for free by only showing their work ID.
