The Audubon Society of Central Maryland will give a demonstration of bird banding at the Audrey Carroll Audubon Sanctuary. Birds will be captured, fitted with a numbered aluminum band, and released unharmed. Information gathered through banding helps researchers learn more about migration, dispersal, behavior, life-span, survival rate, reproductive success, and more. You’ll see how the birds are caught and handled, have a chance to see them closer than ever before, and maybe hold them in the hand! Birds are most readily caught early in the morning, so you’ll have to get up when the birds do. Meet at 8 a.m. at the entry gate to the sanctuary at 13030 Old Annapolis Road (just east of Detrick Road) in Mt. Airy. Limited/basic rest room facilities are available. This event will be cancelled in case of significant rain or wind.

Abuse Treatment Facility for Adolescents in Frederick

The Youth Ranch, formerly the Maryland Sheriffs’ Youth Ranch, a nonprofit in Frederick, Maryland, opened our new facility on June 1, 2016. We are a Residential Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Facility for Adolescents ages 12-17. In the State of Maryland, there are very few facilities available to help adolescents with substance abuse issues.

We have a mind, body, spirit approach. Our program provides:
• 24 Hour Supervision, Residential Stay
• Intensive Outpatient Therapy from our Outside Provider, Crossroads Center of Frederick
• Individualized Treatment Plans
• Oversight of Schooling
• Life Skill Classes
• Recreational & Leisure Activities
• Team Building Activities
• Nutritional Classes
• 12 Step Program
• Mentoring Program
• Spiritual Program
• Group, Individual and Family Therapy

The Youth Ranch is located on 204 beautiful, rural acres in Frederick County, Maryland. We have a top-notch facility and 41 years of experience working with adolescents. Our model is new to the State of Maryland – combining a residential program with Intensive Outpatient Therapy – thus giving our clients 1 – 3 months longer to receive therapy before having to return to their homes. Our facility is private pay for the residential portion with insurance covering the Intensive Outpatient Therapy.
