Earth Day Challenge Set for April 21 at Tuckahoe State Park
Help the Park Stay Clean and Green, Then Help Yourself to Fun and Adventure
Earth Day is a time when the world comes together to better our environment, just as the Maryland Department of Natural Resources works to enhance, protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay and great outdoors.
Citizens can pitch in this year by taking part in the Tuckahoe State Park Earth Day Challenge to beautify our public lands. Volunteers can participate in a variety of activities 9 to 11 a.m. April 21, including art and citizen-science projects, debris removal and tree plantings.
After completing the Earth Day activities, volunteers are welcome to enjoy a free day on Tuckahoe’s Challenge Course, which includes a 40-foot rock wall, tube net, zip line, 50-foot giant swing and 25-foot pamper pole, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Challenge course participation is designed for individuals ages 7 and up. For citizens who cannot participate in the morning activities but want to join the challenge course fun, there will be a cost of $20 for adults, 16 and older, and $10 for those between 7 and 15. Remember to bring close-toed shoes and water.
Opportunities to contribute at the park this Earth Day are being co-sponsored by the Caroline County Health Department, Caroline County Family YMCA, Adkins Arboretum and the Maryland Park Service.
