Even Description

Looking for a unique outdoor recreational adventure?  Experience the wonders of the wetlands via kayak.  Conservation Manager, Courtney Leigh will guide you through basic kayak instruction and then will lead you on a paddle to explore the watershed of Marshy Creek, Grasonville, MD.  We will hope to encounter wading birds, waterfowl, and migratory raptors hunting the marshlands.  Other common sightings include otter, muskrat, terrapin turtles, mating cownose stingrays, schooling silversides, undulating jellyfish and slithery water snakes!  If nothing else the ebb and flow of the tide through gently swaying marsh grass is the sure remedy for nature-deficit disorder! These trips are for beginner to intermediate kayakers and include instruction on equipment, paddling/safety techniques, and loading and unloading the vessels. The experience will give you up to two hours of paddling time with a self-provided snack break at the halfway point. Pre-registration is required by contacting Courtney Leigh at cleigh@bayrestoration.org or 443-262-2032.  Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited. $10 for members; $20 for non-members.
