Patuxent River Clean Up Canoe
September 18, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Have fun on the water and help clean up the Patuxent River. We will paddle the Patuxent and Western Branch picking up trash along the way, while 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 and along the river’s edge. Children must be at least 7 years old. Children under 13 must be accompanied by two paddling adults. The child will sit in the middle of the canoe with adults paddling.
Trips are 4 hours long and include: general orientation, basic paddling lesson, up to 0.5 mile walk, launching canoes, and paddling. Paddlers can expect to actively paddle for 2 to 2.5 hours. The Patuxent River is a relatively slow-moving river, but paddlers must be able to propel the canoe through the water.
Bring plenty of water, lunch, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses, and wear closed toe shoes that can get wet & muddy. Please arrive 15 minutes early. Free. Ages 7 and older.
