The Nanticoke River 5k Run/Walk has been postponed.
A new date has not yet been determined.
The Nanticoke Watershed Alliance is hosting the Nanticoke River 5k Run & Walk (AKA Vineyard Dash) at Layton’s Chance Winery on Saturday, April 18th.
The 5k takes place during Layton’s Chance “View of the Vineyard” event. There will be environmental vendors, hayrides, and tours. The 5k course will take participants through the scenic vineyards of the winery. Runners 21 and older will get a ticket for a complimentary glass of wine or tasting to enjoy after the race.
You can register for the 5k online prior to the event or you can register at the event the morning of. Registration for the race will begin at 8AM that morning and the race will begin at 10AM.
There is ample parking at the venue, so bring your family and friends to cheer you on! After the race, stay and enjoy the festivities. Your participation in this event helps support conservation efforts along the Nanticoke River!
Freshwater surveying of river grasses can continue through the autumn, depending on weather conditions. You can view our Tier 1 or basic training at any time. Please complete the pre- and post-workshop surveys before and after viewing the training video.
We held Coastal Cleanup on Saturday, September 21 in Seaford. Thirty-eight volunteers removed 211 pounds of trash, preventing these items from polluting Williams Pond and the Nanticoke River. Thanks to 4-H and Seaford High School Key Club for lending a hand, and to the City of Seaford for providing lunch and Soroptimist Park pavilion.
