Nassawango Creek Preserve is located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, approximately 2.5 hours from Washington/Baltimore. It is one of the last pieces of true wilderness left on the East Coast. Visit Places We Protect to get more in depth details about its legacy.
This event is held each spring at Nassawango Creek Preserve.
