Join volunteer Diane Diaz Goebes in a paddle and hike to explore Billingsley Manor and Mt. Calvert, two of the oldest homes in Maryland. Although we won’t be able to go inside, we can admire the architecture and enjoy the spectacular views of these historic properties. Participants must be able to paddle a total of about 4 miles. Note that the hikes are short, but fairly steep uphill to the houses.

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.
