Walk for the Woods is back!
Scenic Rivers Land Trust is pleased to announce that our annual “Walk for the Woods” will return in 2021.
The beloved outdoor community event is scheduled for Saturday, April 24, 2021, at Bacon Ridge Natural Area in Crownsville (rain date is April 25).
Scenic Rivers will again partner with Anne Arundel County’s Department of Recreation and Parks to offer a wonderful opportunity to hike and explore this beautiful wilderness just minutes from downtown Annapolis.
For the safety of participants and volunteers, the traditional event will be modified to conform with state and county COVID-19 public gathering requirements. We anticipate a fantastic, safe day in our local, protected woods!
Bacon Ridge Natural Area’s 1,000+ acres are graced with upland streams, lily-filled ponds, nesting birds, and spring wildflowers.
The event will require advance online registration and timed entry to control gathering size. Attendees will access the natural area via Farm Road (typically not open to the public).
Experts in wildlife, native plants, birds, and more will be on-site and available to attendees via guided hikes (registration required). Plus, self-guided hike options will be offered, complete with trail maps and educational signage posted along the trails. Hikes range from 1 to 4 miles, vary in degree of difficulty, and are on marked trails.
Registration for timed entry will open approximately three weeks from the date of the event.
