The regional Girl Scouts council has sold nearly a square mile of forest in Prince George’s County and will use the proceeds to seed a new fund to support camps and expand programming for Girl Scouts across the region.
The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, a bi-county agency that oversees parkland and land use regulation in Prince George's and Montgomery counties, bought the nearly 537 acres of undeveloped land, part of what's known as Marlton Forest, near Charles Branch Stream Valley Park in Upper Marlboro. The sale price was $12.6 million.
