Living Shoreline and Kite Building

Date: Saturday, July 6, 2024 

Time: 9:30 AM to 11 AM

 

Meeting point: Trail head at the Assateague State Park boat ramp parking lot

Address: Near 7200 Stephen Decatur Hwy, Berlin, MD. (Left side of Rt. 611 just before crossing the bridge to Assateague Island.)  

Parking Passes: Free parking passes will be provided for registered event participants.

In 2018, the eroding marsh at the Assateague State Park boat ramp area was reconstructed to serve as a better habitat for bay life. Now the shoreline has a scalloped shape protected by some big boulders, rocks, gravel, and lots of native grasses. Let’s see what kind of creatures we can find along the shore! Wear water shoes or old sneakers (no flip flops). Please bring a bathing suit, towel, sunscreen, and bug spray. After exploring the bay, we will also build, decorate, and fly kites.  

Paddling on Marshall Creek

Group 2: 10:15 am to 11:45 am - FULL

Group 3: 12:15 pm to 1:45 pm

 

Meeting point: Marshall Creek boat ramp

Address: The end of Marshall Creek Rd, Newark, MD


Marshall Creek winds through a beautiful marsh to Newport Bay. We are likely to see lots of birds such as herons, egrets, and ducks. The launch area is a boat ramp which makes it easy to climb in and out of the paddleboats. We will provide kayaks, a canoe, and life vests. No paddling experience is needed. Please wear clothes that may get wet (water dripping from paddles!) and bring bug spray, sunscreen, hat, and water.
