ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland natural resources officials are seeking the public’s input on management of the 1,000-acre Old Bohemia Wildlife Management Area.

The Cecil County property had been owned for more than 300 years by the Jesuits and was part of the first Catholic establishment on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources acquired the property in 2009.

DNR officials say public comments will help wildlife officials create a 15-year-plan for wildlife habitat and recreation
management on the property. The department is accepting public input through March 30.
