Birding by Canoe at Days Cove

September 11 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am

Host:

Baltimore Bird Club.

Leader: Sam Tillman, sam.tillman@gmail.com, 443-844-5917.

Description:

Explore Days Cove from a canoe! This unique location is the only true delta in Baltimore County, formed by the confluence of the Big and Little Gunpowder Falls where they enter the bay and is generally closed to the public. The habitat is a forested wetland with abundant coves to explore and provides excellent opportunities to see Marsh Wrens, Least Bitterns, terns, and rails. We’ll be joined by Joe Davis, science educator and director of the park, who will share the geologic history of the property and provide a short canoeing tutorial. The trip will start at the Days Cove Environmental Education Center, where canoes and lifejackets will be provided for $10 per participant, to be collected on-site before the trip (cash preferred). No experience is necessary, but participants must be at least 12 years old to join us. Hats, sunscreen, insect repellent, and layered clothes are recommended as we’ll be on open water for around 2.5 hours. In case of inclement weather or windy conditions, which would make paddling unsafe, we’ll make this a walking trip or cancel altogether (you will be contacted if this is the case). The gates will be locked promptly at 8:10 AM, so please be on time! LIMIT OF 20 PARTICIPANTS, RSVP to leader required.
