Enjoy a day of serenity spent with other women, submersed in the peacefulness of nature. We will enjoy a leisurely kayak paddle on the Patuxent River, where we will look for wildlife and flowering wetland plants along the shoreline. We will enjoy a gourmet catered lunch at the historic Riggleman House, located on Jug Bay’s newest property. Fee includes naturalist kayak guides, all kayak equipment, gourmet lunch and park admission. A 5 mile hike/walk in the woods will be substituted if weather conditions do not allow for kayaking.
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:
• Independently participate in all activities while maintaining an appropriate and safe body position.
• Manage all personal care and personal mobility independently.
• Effectively communicate with leaders and other participants.
Bring water, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses, closed toe shoes that can get wet and an extra set of dry clothes. Prompt program start time so please arrive by 9:15 am. Ages: 21 and older. Fee: $45.
