Join us for a paddle to the headwaters of Fairlee Creek, one of the largest tributary streams feeding the upper Chesapeake Bay in Kent County. While most people are familiar with the scenery near the mouth of the creek, such as Great Oak Manor and Jellyfish Joel’s, very few have ever seen the unspoiled wetlands and forested shorelines of the stream’s upper stretches. In addition to beautiful marshes, participants are likely to see plenty of wildlife including blue herons, eagles, and ospreys.
Sultana Education Foundation's public paddles are a great way to explore the shallow creeks, streams, and rivers that flow to our nation’s largest estuary. During a typical voyage, participants paddle through scenic, undeveloped portions of one of the Bay’s tidal tributaries while learning about the flora and fauna that make the region so unique. Kayak programs take place on the National Park Service’s Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail and were established with the support of the National Park Service’s Chesapeake Bay Gateways office. Kayaks are provided so all you need to bring is water, a snack, and your binoculars! No children under 12
