Having a Ball at the Nanticoke River Wade In
The Nanticoke River Wade In, organized by the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance and Lower Shore Tributary Action Team, was the place to be for children and adults alike last Thursday. Youth from the Richard Hazel Youth Center and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lower Eastern Shore had a blast at the Nanticoke River Wade In held on June 24th at Cedar Hill Marina. The Nanticoke Watershed Alliance and Lower Shore Tributary Action team sponsored the event in Tyaskin, MD where children from the two programs joined Alliance staff and other participants, including Maryland Delegate Addie Eckhardt and Local Government Liaison for Maryland DNR Scott Hymes, as they waded into the Nanticoke River to measure its clarity. The children also explored the wildlife of the Nanticoke with Maryland DNR biologists and members of the Maryland Conservation Corps. The day was capped off with a free kayaking demonstration by Adrenaline High, a local kayak and biking tourism business.
