The South River Federation is currently involved in what is known as a “living shoreline” project located at Camp Woodlands. Camp Woodlands is a 32 acre woodland waterfront site located on Broad Creek, which feeds into the South River. The land is owned by the Girl Scout Council of Central Maryland, but it is also used by groups such as Anne Arundel County Public Schools and the Boys & Girls Club. This area provides an educational environment in which children can interact with nature and water. The waterfront area of the site has been affected by erosion. This became problematic when erosion was compromising an important access path to the boat dock area. In order to restore the current area as well as protect from future erosion, a living shoreline needed to be created.
