Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act! ShoreRivers Riverkeepers will host a paddle on the Choptank River with Choptank Riverkeeper Matt Pluta on Sept. 20, from 1 to 3pm. This two-hour event is open for 16 paddlers each, ages 10 and up. Paddlers can bring their own kayak or use gear provided by ShoreRivers. (ShoreRivers kayaks and gear are available for up to 10 people).
This urban-style paddle will traverse the Choptank River and up Cambridge Creek into the heart of downtown Cambridge. Matt will discuss the status of the creek and river’s water quality while talking about pressing issues like shoreline resilience, wastewater collection issues, and polluted runoff from urban landscapes.
