Welcome to the Magothy River

Long-Time Residents of the Magothy River
This is a call for the long-time residents of the Magothy River to share their memories, old pictures and home movies with the Magothy River Association (MRA) in order to produce the Magothy History Video for generations to come.

State of the Magothy River By Sally Hornor
This video is about the 2014 State of the Magothy River by Dr Sally Hornor, a presentation completed during the MRA annual meeting of February 18, 2015, at the AACC of Arnold in Maryland.

Save the Magothy River
I did not coin the term "oyster babies"; a kid from the Eagle Cove did. This is about a community of children and adults working together to save their river for generations to come. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the Horn Point Laboratories, The Oyster Recovery Partnership. The Eagle Cove School and the Magothy River Association have provided their resources as well for the success of the project. Charles Germain.

Floating Gardens of the Magothy
This video is about the floating gardens of the Magothy river, designed by the Magothy River Association jointly with Anne Arundel Community College to restore the health of the river. For further information email: president@magothyriver.org
