Scheduled Guided Hikes At The Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center
Guided Hikes will lead participants on CBEC’s Lake Trail for a unique opportunity to discover several ecologically important habitats to the Chesapeake Bay watershed found on our 510 acre peninsula in Grasonville, MD. A docent will lead participants on a journey to explore topics of Hummock Succession, Oyster Reef Ecology, Salt Marsh Plants, Lake Knapp Bird Residents, and Resident Raptors all while walking a 1.5 mile flat path around the center of our 510 acre peninsula. Each month we will be announcing a specialty topic for these hikes led by a Maryland Master Naturalist, please check our calendar on our website for these announcements. Specialty topics include: Birding, Botany, Fungus, or Reptiles/Amphibians. There is a half-way rest stop with restroom accessibility. Participants are encouraged to dress for weather and bring along a water bottle, small snack, and binoculars. Duration is approximately 2 hours. Trips are subject to cancellation due to weather or low enrollment. Check-in and hike begin at the Visitor Center at 600 Discovery Lane, Grasonville, MD.
Cost is FREE to CBEC Members, $5 for Non Members
