Woods, wetlands in Pasadena placed under protection
A Pasadena property that includes two environmentally sensitive bogs will be permanently preserved under the county's Program Open Space.
Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens signed a conservation easement for the 390-acre Looper property Friday, said spokesman Matt Diehl. The property is mostly woodlands.
The county bought the property for $4.9 million, of which $2.3 million was covered by a federal grant.
