Marshy Point is part of the U.S. National Park Service’s Chesapeake Gateways Network.  Naturalist, Bob Stanhope, will start in the center with a half hour presentation, then take us out on the water.  On the water, we will paddle from shallow water – redhead grass and marsh plants - to deeper water – wild celery and duck hunting tales – a round trip of two miles. The full moon will rise around 5 pm and the sun will set around 6:40, promising to be a magical evening.  

People should bring a beverage an snack.  The paddles and life jackets are furnished with the canoes. You can bring your own canoe or rent a new Swift canoe for $7/person.  This trip is limited to 8 canoes, 3 people each, or 24 folks.
