 “Mattawoman represents as near to ideal conditions as can be found in the northern Chesapeake Bay, perhaps unattainable in the other systems, and should be protected from overdevelopment.” (Maryland’s Department of Natural Resources)

Mattawoman Creek, 20 miles south of Washington DC, is threatened by substantial roads and development. Come enjoy its tranquil beauty and to observe the freshwater wetlands and the animals and quality of life this precious regional watershed supports.

Participants should have some paddling experience.

Pre-registration is required even if you have your own boat. If you do not have your own boat reserve a canoe or kayak when registering (whihc will include a pfd and paddle.) On-line registration will close on Wednesday, Sept. 21.

For information: Karyn Molines,
