Discover Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary’s newest property, the Emory Waters Nature Preserve. We will launch kayaks from the farm pier and paddle south on the Patuxent River, exploring wetlands and shoreline as we go. We will paddle the beautiful Lyons Creek looking for beaver, otter, birds, and flowering wetland plants. Note this is a longer paddle than our regular trips, at approximately 5 hours and 4 miles. Paddlers can expect to actively paddle for about 4 hours. Ages: 18 or older.
The Patuxent River is a relatively slow-moving river, but paddlers must be able to propel the canoe 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.
Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses, lunch, and wear closed toe shoes that can get wet & muddy. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time. $30 per person. Registration is required and is limited to 9 participants. Current health guidelines and registration required. Cancellations after 7.9.22 will convert to a donation to the Friends of Jug Bay. All proceeds benefit the SUP and kayak program. For questions call 410-222-8006 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
