About the Board
The Monocacy Scenic River Citizens' Advisory Board was created in 1978 and comprises 10 members, 5 appointed by the Carroll County Commissioners and 5 appointed by the Frederick County Commissioners. Learn more.

The Monocacy Scenic River Board encourages input from the public. Citizens are invited to offer their input on Board issues, and express their concerns and questions on environmental matters relating to the Monocacy River and its watershed. Contact either staff liaison listed below.
