Concerned land owners, who over the years have exercised good land use judgment, can be credited with the conservation of this threatened gem.
The organization now independently owns and manages this wild area. Its members and the public enjoy the use of the property for purposes consistent with conservation and education.
The Dragon wilderness is a unique ecosystem which has been ranked second in ecological significance among 232 areas investigated in a Smithsonian Institution study which covered 12,600 square miles of the Chesapeake Bay region.
Friends of Dragon Run (FODR) is blessed to have several walking trails/access roads on its properties, trails and roads that give access to the Dragon Run and its surrounding lands. As such, the trails, etc., provide opportunities to view not only the Dragon, but also the terrestrial fauna and flora of the Dragon lands. The current trails are all level, relatively clear and well marked, provide easy walking, and have one or more benches to sit on.
We encourage you to join the The Friends of Dragon Run and support our activities.
