Maryland Camp Gets $1 Million for Conservation

Habonim Dror Camp Moshava has received $1.36 million from the state of Maryland to permanently set aside 230 acres for conservation.

The grant, the largest of its type this year, comes through Maryland?s Rural Legacy Program and affects 85 percent of the land at Camp Moshava.

Located in Hartford County, the land to be set aside will preserve the habitats of native plant and wildlife species, support natural resources, and protect forests and wetlands.

According to its website, Camp Moshava is an international Labor Zionist youth movement dedicated to teaching the values of kibbutz.

The Maryland Rural Legacy Program provides funding to protect large areas of land from development sprawl and provide environmental protection.

?Our campers and staff have always taken great pride in the special natural features of our site,? said Eytan Graubart, the camp?s executive director. ?Now we have ensured that this unique environment will be preserved forever.?
