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.
