“Moms Big Year” by Nancy McAllister

We’ve all got “something,” right?  Something that’s happened in the past or something that is currently in our lives that we carry with us every single day.  Join inspirational speaker, Nancy McAllister, to learn how she used nature and a passion for birds to begin her journey of healing after a family tragedy.  Come hear her many wonderful, heartwarming stories as she juggled life, work and family while using a “Big Year” birding adventure to heal, renew and rediscover herself. Wednesday, November 6, 2019, from 6:30-7:30 pm at Chesapeake Beach Town Hall located at 8200 Bayside Road, Chesapeake Beach, MD  20732.

Owl Prowl

How do owls hunt at night?  What owls live around here?  Join us on Saturday, November 16, 2019, from 7 pm-8:30 pm at Wetlands Overlook Park for a walk on the woodland trail to learn these answers along with these nocturnal creature’s amazing adaptations to survive living at night.  Plan on an hour and a half program and please dress for the weather.  Binoculars are not necessary but flashlights or headlamps are allowed and we will be covering the lights with red film to make them more friendly to owl’s eyes.  Refreshments will be served afterward.  For more information or to register, please contact Lisa Garrett, Director of Eco-tourism at or 443-646-2426.
