New Beginnings

New Beginnings – The Woodlawn Wildlife Area consists of a former landfill and an adjacent natural area owned by Bridgestone Americas, Inc. This project is part of an ongoing effort to transform the land into a thriving wildlife area and to establish a unique natural resource in Cecil County, Maryland.

Wildlife at Work and Corporate Lands for Learning programs at New Beginnings are managed by WHC’s Land Restoration Program Manager. Efforts at the site are performed with strong participation from local residents, community groups, area schools and Master Gardeners.

As a WHC-managed program, New Beginnings provides insights and best practices for other WHC members in the development of their wildlife habitat management plans.

The site is open to the public to walk the trails, do some birding or volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering at New Beginnings check the News page for updates or contact us.
