Beach Explorer - for the curious and young at heart!
This program provides an opportunity for adults and children to share the wonderful experience of investigating nature by kayak. The adventure begins with an orientation session, including figuring out where you are in the watershed, a brief land lesson, and safety discussion. Then we’re off to explore! We'll paddle along Mattawoman Creek, land at a beach, and get out the nets to see what kind of fish and other critters we can find in the water. We will keep a record of what we caught to contribute to the ongoing citizen science effort to monitor fish populations in Mattawoman Creek. 2 1/2 hours. Fee: $60
July 4th Fireworks on Mattawoman Creek
Enjoy fireworks displays without the crowds! You'll be surrounded by the sounds and sights of nature, as you meander along the wild rice and cattails of Mattawoman Creek and enjoy a gorgeous sunset. Local fireworks light up the sky as you relax among the yellow pond lilies surrounded by the calling of tree frogs. Fee of $65 per person includes interpretive guides, all equipment and sparkling cider to add to the celebration.
