Reel in and Recycle Project Leader
Maryland Coastal Bays has been taking part in a Boat US Foundation program called “Reel in and Recycle.” Through this program we received a few containers designed as disposal mechanisms for fishing line. By placing these containers at popular fishing locations, Maryland Coastal Bays is working to keep fishing lines out of the water and off of the land.
MCBP needs help maintaining these by emptying the containers monthly and boxing the line up to send to Berkley Recycling in Iowa.
This is a great opportunity to get outdoors and become an asset to the Maryland Coastal Bays Program. We can’t protect our watershed without you!
