The American Chestnut Land Trust and Chesapeake Biological Laboratory invite you to join a guided paddle up Parkers Creek, one of the most cared for and protected environments on the Chesapeake Bay’s western shore. Trips are 3 hours long and challenging. ACLT allows you the option to use their canoes (2 person) or you are welcome to bring your own canoe/kayak. As a non-profit charity, ACLT asks that guests help off-set the trip’s expenses with a $15/person program fee.

On this special National Estuaries Week paddle, you will be joined by scientists from UMCES Chesapeake Biological Laboratory. During this trip, scientists will take water quality measurement, discuss the importance and ecology of estuaries, and explain how they are monitoring sea level rise right here in Calvert County, Maryland.
