Monocacy Hill is a valuable natural resource in this area, providing habitat for wild animals and plants, watershed protection and various kinds of outdoor recreation for the people of this region. With development increasing all around us, Monocacy Hill is one of the few natural open spaces remaining in the area.  MHCA assists Amity Township year round in maintaining the trails and facilities.  The work that we do allows area residents to enjoy this beautiful recreation area.
