Up for a “SPOOKY”, but fun evening on the water? Join volunteer Philippe Hensel and Patricia Delgado (Park Superintendent) for a one of a kind evening paddle along the Patuxent River. We will make one stop by the water’s edge where Philippe will share local legends and ghost stories around a campfire. Enjoying hot cider, sandwiches, and popcorn. During our paddle, we will look for beaver, otter, muskrat, birds, and other wildlife along the shore line. It will be an evening to remember!

The Patuxent River is a relatively slow-moving river, but paddlers must be able to propel the canoe or kayak through the water. Participants must be able to:

1. Independently participate in all activities while maintaining an appropriate and safe body position.

2. Manage all personal care and personal mobility independently.

3. Effectively communicate with leaders and other participants.

Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses, and closed toed shoes that can get wet & muddy. Your feet will get wet! A hike will be substituted if weather conditions do not allow for a paddle trip. Head lamps will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Ages: 18 and older. Fee: $45 per person. All proceeds will go to the Friends of Jug Bay to fund the purchase of kayaks, canoes and equipment to support outdoor education programs along the Patuxent River. Registration is required.
