UofMD Baltimore Casino Survey

From UofMD Baltimore — “On behalf of Dr. Kate Tracy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore I wanted to reach out and let you know about our research project. In the next few weeks you may see some of our surveyors in your neighborhood. They are all wearing bright yellow shirts with the Maryland Center for Excellence on Problem Gambling logo. We are trying to get community residents and business owners to fill out a survey that is capturing opinions on how the new Horseshoe Casino coming into downtown Baltimore will effect the communities directly surrounding it.

I wanted to contact the neighborhood association to let you know that our surveyors will be out and about and any cooperation is greatly appreciated. We look forward to meeting residents in your community.”

TreeKeepers Classes from our friends in Otterbein Community Association

TreeKeepers classes are have been designed and will be taught by partners whose logos you see at the bottom of the page. We all believe that tree education is a key component to increasing Baltimore’s tree cover. In order to Transform Baltimore With Trees (the mission of Baltimore Tree Trust) we need to be well informed. We provide classroom and in the field learning activities that promote collaboration, enable discussion and make us all better caretakers and advocates for Baltimore’s trees. These classes appeal to individuals of all ages. After completion of the classes and participation at partner tree planting events, there will be a certificate awarded. These classes are fun!!
