Patapsco/Baltimore Harbor by Kayak
Saturday, June 7, 2014
Rain date: June 14th
10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Explore by kayak Patapsco River wetlands where the river empties into Baltimore Harbor. We will put it at Southwest Area Park in Baltimore County just across the border and paddle upstream to explore the marshes and wildlife. If the weather is good, we will then paddle to the harbor and Masonville Cove, visit the environmental education center there, and witness the restoration work going on in and around the cove. The area is home to perch, osprey, and blue heron. Led by experienced and knowledgeable guides, you will experience a hidden treasure and witness nature close to the city. The round trip is about 5 miles.
Participants must be over 18 years old and should have some experience in kayaking. Please wear appropriate clothing, pack lunch, and bring water and sunscreen. Please also bring work gloves and a large trash bag—we are going to clean-up the site before departing.
Kayaks, paddles and life vests will be provided. Space is limited to 20 kayakers. We have six single and seven double kayaks.
The park is accessible by the blue or yellow line light rail system (Baltimore Highland stop) see map. If you plan to take the light rail, please let us know via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
