Meghan Rhode, Assateague State Park’s assistant manager, hadn’t given much thought to pollinator habitats until she was put in charge of one. Since then, she and the habitat have blossomed. In this episode Meghan gives us a fascinating guided tour of the park’s pollinator habitat, discusses COVID’s impact on park operations, introduces us to a somewhat confused osprey, and much, much more.
This is the third and final episode in our three-part series on Assateague State Park’s shoreline resiliency and wetland enhancement project. You can hear Underwood & Associates’s Chris Becraft in part one, our Episode 14, and Maryland Coastal Bays Program’s Kevin Smith in part two, our Episode 15.
