Mysteries of the Marsh-Sunrise Mattaponi Creek Kayak
Discover Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary’s newest property, the Emory Waters Nature Preserve. We will
launch kayaks from the farm pier and paddle south along the Patuxent River and up Mattaponi Creek,
exploring wetlands and shoreline as we go, looking for beaver, otter, birds, and flowering wetland
plants. 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, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses, lunch, headlamp,
and wear closed toe shoes that can get wet & muddy. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time.
$30 per person. Cancellations after 7.30.22 will convert to a donation to the Friends of Jug Bay. All proceeds benefit the SUP and kayak program. Register at www.jugbay.org.
