This 54-acre property owned by the Maryland Port Administration was designated as the nation’s first urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership in 2013. It is home to a green building nature center and beautiful waterfront public trails.
Beginning in 2007, an extensive restoration project began at Masonville Cove, a property owned by the Maryland Port Administration (MPA). The process resulted in the nation’s first Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership, home to a green building nature center and beautiful waterfront public trails which opened in 2009. MPA joined in partnership with Living Classrooms, the National Aquarium, and the US Fish & Wildlife Service to support the site which now plays host to Captain Trash Wheel and Baltimore City’s first known pair of nesting Bald Eagles. On April 27th, 2022, the MPA entered into an easement totaling 54 acres of land with Maryland Environmental Trust and Baltimore Green Space that will protect this magnificent site in perpetuity.
