Unwind on a Friday evening with a leisurely paddle. Discover the abundant wildlife and plants at the wetlands of Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary. We will paddle along the shore and marsh edges of the Patuxent River, looking for beavers, muskrats, osprey, bald eagles, red winged black birds, ducks, and many other animals. See the beautiful colors of plants blooming in the wetlands. Cancellations after 7.19.24 will convert to a donation to the Friends of Jug Bay. All proceeds benefit the canoe and kayak programs. Ages: 18 or older (16 with a parent). 

Paddlers can expect to actively paddle for approximately 3 hours.
