CBEC Guided Hikes
June 17, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Guided Hikes will lead participants on Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center’s Lake Trail for a unique opportunity to discover several ecologically important habitats to the Chesapeake Bay watershed in Grasonville. 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 the 510-acre peninsula.
Each month there is a specialty topic for these hikes, led by a Maryland Master Naturalist. Specialty topics include Birding, Botany, Fungus or Reptiles/Amphibians. There is a halfway rest stop with restroom accessibility. Participants are encouraged to dress for weather and bring along a water bottle, small snack and binoculars. Duration is about 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.
