Share Free Patuxent River Clean Up by Canoe
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. Trips are 4 hours long and include: general orientation, basic paddling lesson, up to 0.5 mile walk to canoes, launching canoes, and paddling. Paddlers can expect to actively paddle for 2 to 2.5 hours. Children must be at least 7 years old, and under 13 must be accompanied by two paddling adults. The child will sit in the middle of the canoe with adults paddling. 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. Free.
