Score one for the bullies: Threats and boos kill Quiet Waters environmental center

January 25, 2023

On Sunday night, the Chesapeake Conservancy capitulated. “In consultation with the Earl family, we have decided against building the proposed structure that we had hoped would serve as the Earl Conservation Center at Quiet Waters Park,” the Annapolis-based nonprofit said in a 9:44 p.m. statement. It’s not a surprise. The conservancy and the Earl family made the expansion of this popular park possible, orchestrating the $8 million sale to Anne Arundel County using state, federal, local and private funds.
