Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary 30th Anniversary Celebration

posted in: Events | 0

On Saturday, October 3, 2015, the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary (JBWS) will host an anniversary celebration and concert at the Glendening Nature Preserve (Plummer House).

The FREE anniversary celebration will feature a climbing wall, hayrides, live animals, touch-a-truck, kids’ zone, guided hikes, food, local vendors, and gift bag giveaways.

During the celebration, visitors will enjoy live music throughout the day from the Jug Bay Jug Band, Bridgette Michaels, Rockfish, and The Back Pages.

Past Sanctuary director Chris Swarth will also lead a planting of 30 milkweed plants in the meadow at Glendening Preserve. The 30 milkweeds will both commemorate Jug Bay’s first 30 years and symbolize the commitment to conserving a thriving natural Sanctuary for Anne Arundel County.

Located in southern Anne Arundel County, in the tidal reaches of the Patuxent River, Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary is a designated site on the Patuxent Water Trail.

JBWS is the largest park operated by Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks containing 1,700 acres of tidal freshwater marshes, forested wetlands, upland and riparian forest, creeks, meadows, pine and sand barrens, and fields.

The Sanctuary’s mission incorporates education, research, and stewardship, and it supports all three components with a strong and talented volunteer base.
