Southern Maryland Nature Fest

Patuxent Tidewater Land Trust will be there to share information about themselves and the programs they offer.  ACLT will also be offering activities such as hay rides, nature-related arts and crafts, farm tours, etc.  We will have a food truck along with beer and sangria, plus free giveaways for attendees.

In addition, a new program:

"In Your Own Back Yard: 

A Program to Inspire the Southern Maryland Community to Enjoy and Care for Their Local Land, Wildlife and Waterways". 

Through this program, we hope to introduce local residents to the benefits, ease, and joys of visiting and assisting in the care of Southern Maryland’s rural landscapes managed by nonprofits and local and state agencies, such as  ACLT's Parkers Creek Preserve, and to encourage them to visit the wide selection of local and state parks as well as other lesser-known places offering eco-tourism.

Description

Come hear Dr. Orrin Pilkey and see the artwork of renowned artist Mary Edna Fraser at CBL on Solomons as they talk about their books A Celebration of the World's Barrier Islands (Columbia University Press) and Global Climate Change, A Primer (Duke University Press)  "There are 2,200 barrier island in the world, found on every continent except Antarctica. These amazingly dynamic features make up about 10% of the worlds open ocean coastlines and are found from the tropics to the Arctic . The Persian Gulf Islands formed in a desert environment, the Colombian Pacific islands formed in a tropical rain forest environment and the barrier islands of Siberia formed in the Arctic. America has by far the largest number (405) of such islands, many of which are popular tourist resorts. Each chain of islands is made up of different varieties of sediment, and is subjected to different types of waves and storm histories.. The barrier Islands of Iceland face some of the highest waves found in any of the worlds oceans while the islands along the Egyptian Nile Delta shore are subjected to small waves as a rule. All the islands went through similar histories of sea level change and most came to their present location and shape within the last 5,000 years and most are eroding today in response to sea level rise.” Orrin Pilkey and Mary Edna Fraser
