If you'd like to get away from it all and feel like you're in the middle of nature, this is the perfect place to visit.  It has been described by many as the most pristine tributary of the Chesapeake Bay.

As soon as you launch you will be in a tidal freshwater marsh, with wild rice and cattails.  Explore a little further, and you'll see osprey nests and beaver lodges.

If you like getting your feet wet, and you’re curious about who lives in the water, this adventure is for you.  Once we’re on a beach, we’ll get out the nets and see what critters we can find in the water. You’ll learn to identify fish and invertebrates like crayfish, scuds, and damselfly nymphs.  You can even touch the critters as long as you’re gentle and your hands are wet so you won’t hurt them.
