The Maryland State Fire Marshal is warning parents of a new viral teen video, which may result in fire incidents and cause serious injury. The “challenge” seen on the popular video app, TikTok, involves using the plug part of a phone charger, partially inserting it into the wall outlet, and then sliding a penny down the wall onto the exposed prongs. “We are alerting parents to this challenge, and advise them to not only look for signs of fire play like scorched outlets but to have conversations about fire and electrical safety with tweens and teenagers.”

Winter can be a tough time of year for many of our local wildlife species. You can give them a hand by creating habitat and providing natural foods. In the winter edition of HabiChat learn about Cedar Waxwings, native inkberry holly, Winter Greens for Wildlife, and more.

Are you a birder? Help with the third Maryland-DC Breeding Bird Atlas. MD DNR wants to know what species are still utilizing Maryland to breed through a population survey method known a breeding bird atlas. Data for the Atlas is collected through the MD-DC BBA3 eBird portal and not the standard eBird page.

I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend full of musical entertainment. Enjoy!
