Maryus Landing Cleanup 2-22-2020

 Landscape Mural Installed at Maryus Landing 

Maryus Landing is now host to a beautiful eight-foot-long landscape mural sign highlighting Guinea pride, requested by the Guinea Heritage Association and designed by local artist Lori Greene. The sign was purchased using a grant award from the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund, paid for by Chesapeake Bay license plate sales.

The site was recently cleared of years of illegally dumped debris. An initial large cleanup was accomplished by local volunteers, including energetic and enthusiastic members of Boy Scout Troop 113.  The biggest contribution and thanks goes to the Abingdon Ruritan Club under the direction of their Environmental Committee Chair Roger Dick, for their hard work and dedication to this project. The Ruritans returned to Maryus Landing for multiple cleanups, even bringing their own large equipment when needed.
