Walk for the Woods

Walk for the Woods is Scenic Rivers Land Trust’s signature community event celebrating the joy of the outdoors and our local, protected woods.

Scenic Rivers will again partner with Anne Arundel County’s Department of Recreation and Parks to offer a wonderful opportunity to hike and explore this beautiful wilderness just minutes from downtown Annapolis. Bacon Ridge Natural Area’s 1,000+ acres are graced with upland streams, lily-filled ponds, nesting birds, and spring wildflowers.

Experts in wildlife, native plants, birds, and more will be on-site and available to attendees. Plus, self-guided hike options will be offered, complete with trail maps and educational signage posted along the trails. Hikes range from 1 to 4 miles, vary in degree of difficulty, and are on marked trails.

Registration for guided hikes will open approximately three weeks before the event. The hike schedule and link to registration will be announced via email and social media.

Rain date is May 1.

GreenGiveThe GreenGive is a local, environmentally-focused, 24-hour online initiative designed to both raise funds and expand residents’ and businesses’ engagement with local environmental organizations, issues, projects and actions.

On July 21-22, 2020, we invite the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County community to join with us to support clean water in our own communities. Through an interactive online platform, individuals and businesses will be invited to invest in clean water by donating to any of the GreenGive partners:

Pick More Than One! All ten GreenGive partners are part of a force for the Greener Good in Anne Arundel County.

Funds raised through the GreenGive will be used by the ten GreenGive partners to invest in actions that have a tangible impact on our own local waterways and quality of life. Every dollar raised will be turned into projects and programs that really do make a difference right here in Anne Arundel County. In a time when federal support and leadership is uncertain at best, we know that the fate of our local environment is in our own hands.

We all love our Chesapeake Bay and consider it a national treasure. GreenGive organizations intend to make sure that the waterways that feed into the Bay are clean and ready for fishing, crabbing, swimming and boating. There is no better legacy we can leave the next generation.
