Title:  Ten Mile Creek Watershed in Black Hill Regional Park

Leader: Ken Bawer

Come see why the Ten Mile Creek Watershed is worth protecting from over-development. The Montgomery County Council will be voting soon on whether or not to allow a mega-development which would pollute Ten Mile Creek and the Little Seneca Reservoir, an emergency water source for 4.3 million DC area residents. Most of the trails are very wide (about 9 feet) -- great for group botanizing.
