Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary 1361 Wrighton Rd Lothian, MD 20711

Cost $40.00


Up for a “SPOOKY”, but fun evening on the water? Join Jug Bay Superintendent Patricia Delgado, Dave Linthicum, and Philippe Hensel for a one of a kind evening paddle along the Patuxent River. We will make one stop by the water’s edge where Dave and Philippe will share local legends and ghost stories around a campfire. We will enjoy hot cider and finger food. During our paddle, we will also look for beaver, otter, muskrat, birds, and other wildlife along the shore line. 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.
All proceeds will go to the Friends of Jug Bay to fund the furnishings of 5 cabins, part of the Jug Bay Field Station Project. The cabins will provide overnight facilities to students, researchers, and visitors.
Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses, and wear closed toe shoes that can get wet. Bring a person you are comfortable being in a canoe with. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time. Head lamps will be provided, but please bring one if you have one. Maximum participants: 12. Ages: 21 and older. Fee $40.  Registration required.
