A feature article on the front page of the March 11th Maryland Independent discusses rare and endangered plants and animals in southern Maryland, and efforts by a number of groups to protect them, including MWS.

Work by MWS to protect the Mattawoman from over-development also helps rare species by conserving their habitat. Many rare species rely on wetlands or streams during their life cycle.
