Bear Creek Kayaking
Saturday, July 25, 2015
10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Experience Bear Creek by kayak. Bear Creek in Dundalk provides a unique experience on urban waters. Led with the help of our partner, the Canton Kayak Club, you will see the impact of suburban development on the land and water, paddle close to the infamous Sparrows Point, and hear from a local environmental group about what's being done in the area. We will be in the creek the entire paddle, so, if the weather cooperates, it should be a relatively easy 5.5-mile paddle. Bring lunch, water, sunscreen, and wear appropriate clothing. Registration deadline: July 17.

Learn the fine art of oyster gardening! CBF is expanding our oyster gardening program in the harbor and looking for 50 new gardeners to care for two cages of oysters each over the winter and then "plant" them on a reef in the spring. This unusual hobby is fun, educational and helps to clean the harbor waters. Wear grubby clothes and close-toed shoes. To be an oyster gardener, we request a fee of $50 that pays for materials, a T-shirt and hat, gloves and cleaning brush. Space is limited, so it will be first come - first serve with a waiting list. Registration deadline: September 18.
