BAY DAY is back and will feature tons of fun and interactive things to see and do for kids of all ages. There will be a special kids craft tent including face painting and other free activities. Get touch-tank introductions to Phillip’s Wharf creatures from the Bay and land; talk to Coastie the Coast Guard robot-boat and Shelly, the Oyster Recovery Partnership character; meet the raptors and rescues with Scales and Tales, and explore our rain garden. Educational non-profits interested in booth information please contact Lea Sloan, lsloan@americanforests.org.

All year, visitors can enjoy our universally accessible soft launch for canoes and kayaks along the John Smith Trail and the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail, with ADA compliant parking as well as bike racks.
