Middle Patuxent Environmental Area

5795 Trotter Road
Clarksville, MD 21029

The Foundation, in partnership with Howard County’s Recreation and Parks Department, helps to maintain and preserve the Middle Patuxent Environmental Area (MPEA) as a “forever protected” natural environmental area.

As you navigate this site, we hope you will learn about the history and composition of the MPEA, its importance in preserving species of flora and fauna in central Maryland, and what you can do to be a “good neighbor” to this important natural resource.
