Leaders: Karyn Molines and Lisa Bierer Garrett
Tucked away on Maryland's lower eastern shore, this park is well known for its stand of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) and baldcypress (Taxodium distichum) swamps that border the Pocomoke River. Exploring the swamps by kayaks gets us up close and intimate with these unique habitats. The river originates in the Great Cypress Swamp in Delaware and flows southwesterly 45 miles to the Chesapeake Bay. No kayak experience required, kayaks, paddles and life vests will be provided. Participants must be able to sit in the kayak and paddle throughout the entire 2-hour paddle. We’ll explore a combination of freshwater wetland, swamp and upland habitats. If weather is not safe for water sports (cold temperatures or high winds) a land-based trip will be substituted.
Registration is restricted to the fall conference attendees. You can select this field trip when you register for the conference.
