Cheer the paddlers on, then take a tour of Marcy's Woods and the Shagbark Nature Trail
Thanks to our partners at the Bert Miller Nature Club, suppoters could sign up for an expert-led tour of coastal natural treasures happening at the same time.
They could learn about what it takes to restore dunes, build a Chimney Swift Tower, plant a meadow with native wildflowers and help bluebirds raise their young. This was an chance to get an insider’s perspective of the dunes at Nickel Beach (paddleboard launch site), Marcy’s Woods and the Shagbark Nature Trail.
