Turtle Paddle – 2023 Sultana Education Foundation
September 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Be prepared to view dozens of Eastern Painted Turtles and Red-Bellied Turtles as you explore wild Tuckahoe Creek, a major tributary of the Choptank River. Sultana Education Foundation’s public paddles are a great way to explore the shallow creeks, streams, and rivers that flow to our nation’s largest estuary. During a typical voyage, participants paddle through scenic, undeveloped portions of one of the Bay’s tidal tributaries while learning about the flora and fauna that make the region so unique. Kayak programs take place on the National Park Service’s Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail and were established with the support of the National Park Service’s Chesapeake Bay Gateways office. Kayaks are provided so all you need to bring is water, a snack, and your binoculars! No children under 12
