Today we saved this website. Oh, the drama! Let’s just say that three heads are better than one, and that we beat the deadline by one day to pay our yearly fee and for our domain name before our site would shut down. Whew! The heroes of this day are (R to L) Robert Prenger, Glenn Ferenschak, and Ryan Wetzel.
Rob Prenger, Project Manager, Maryland DNR Forest Service and secretary of our Forestry Board.
Glenn Ferenschak, Chairman of the Baltimore County Forestry Board and retired science teacher.
Ryan Wetzel, the Natural Resources Technician for the Forest Service in Baltimore County.
Vic Sanborn, website developer, photographer, and retired adult education specialist.
After Thanksgiving, one of the many fall tasks remaining for the two-man crew of the Forest Service in Baltimore County (Rob and Ryan) is to blow the piles of leaves from the Cub Hill Ranger Station Grounds.

Earlier in October, Peter Sheggrud, who represented Baltimore County Forestry Board at the NRCC this year, attended our Board meeting to discuss his experiences during the week. They were quite positive. Of course, COVID-19 affected some of the traditional ways that the NRCC has been held in the past. Mrs. Sheggrud regretted that parents could not attend some of the workshops due to COVID restrictions, but she understood the need.
Peter’s interests for now are to work with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services after college. He and his parents are exploring colleges and universities that can best help him reach his goals. His experiences at the camp were positive and exciting. When prompted by board members, his suggestions for camp experience improvement for students made sense and were well thought out. The Board not only enjoyed the discussion, we had a sense of pride for this young man and wish him great success.
