Old Line Government Affairs helped the Boy Scouts of America Baltimore Area Council receive funding critical for capital improvements to Broad Creek Memorial Reservation.
The nearly 1,700 acres at Broad Creek Memorial Scout Reservation in Harford County is the largest privately held, non-government woodland property in Central Maryland. Each year more than 20,000 youth visit to participate in activities featuring youth development, adventure programs, and team building in the backdrop of the outdoors. The property also serves as training grounds for various law enforcement agencies and search-and-rescue organizations and encompasses over 800 acres of federally and locally protected forest.
The Baltimore Area Council of the Boy Scouts is currently in the process of making much needed capital improvements to the property so that it may continue to serve both the Scouts and the surrounding community. While they have raised a good amount of the funding for these capital improvements through private donors, Old Line’s lobbyists worked with Chairmen Guy Guzzone (an Eagle Scout himself) and Craig Zucker, as well as the Harford County Delegation Members, to fill in the shortfall of funding needed to keep a time-honored experience alive for Scouts throughout Maryland.
