Nanticoke River Eco-Paddle

Bring your family and join us, and the campaign Reclaim Our River -- Nanticoke Series, for a morning paddle followed by lunch.

The Nanticoke River Water Trail spans a 26-mile segment of the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail through Delaware and Maryland. In 1608, Captain John Smith explored the river, and named it the Nanticoke after the Native Americans who lived along its banks. Today, the 725,000-acre watershed supports a diverse range of wildlife and more rare plants than any other landscape in the Chesapeake.

2018 is the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System so #findyourtrail along this beautiful stretch of our first national water trail.

Come learn about wildlife, water quality and the river’s history. After the paddle, join us for lunch and see exhibits from the Reclaim Our River partnership.

Contact Stephanie Heidbreder with any questions or visit the event page for more information.
