A New Guide to Bay Play

Chesapeake Conservancy’s Trips-and-Tips covers the watershed

When you want to strike out farther than the here-today-gone-tomorrow in Anne Arundel and Calvert events of 8 Days a Week, where do you go?
    Subscribe to Chesapeake Conservancy’s Trips-and-Tips, and weekly updates from all over Chesapeake Country appear in your inbox each Thursday. The price is right for this brand-new, free guide to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
    “Each week,” says the Conservancy’s Jody Couser, “we highlight interesting, unusual and off-the-beaten-path events taking place from the mouth of the Chesapeake to the Susquehanna and everywhere in between. Cruises in Maryland, hikes in the Shenandoah and festivals in Baltimore, it’s all there and more.”
    This week’s edition features the Winter Waterman’s Festival in Pocomoke City … meteor shower viewing in Woodstock … star parties in Virginia Beach … festivals of lights from the Cape Henry Lighthouse to Sandy Point State park to Annmarie Gardens to the National Zoo to Rocky Ridge.
    You’ll also learn how you can get on the Captain John Smith Trail and take waterman-guided heritage tours.
    It’s all part of the Annapolis-based Conservancy’s mission to “strengthen the connection between people and the watershed, conserve the landscapes and special places that sustain the Chesapeake’s unique natural and cultural resources and encourage exploration and celebration of the Chesapeake as a national treasure.”
