Summer Fun Day #19: Visit Jug Bay Wetlands

Explore the outdoors and learn more about local wildlife with a visit to Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary.

turtlejugbaySituated on the eastern side of the Patuxent River in Lothain, Jug Bay is made up of 1,700 acres of tidal freshwater wetlands. The sanctuary works to protect vital wildlife habitat, promote research and educate the public about the natural environment.

Visitors can hike the over fifteen miles of hiking trails and boardwalks, go fishing, take part in programs or visit the  Nature Play Space outside of the Visitor’s Center, where kids can delight in musical instruments made from natural materials, a sunken canoe and a hut made of vines.

The miles of trails and boardwalks at Jug Bay are home to inhabitants of many species, and families can learn about them inside the Visitor’s Center through hands-on games and activities. Jug Bay is also celebrating their 30th anniversary this year with thirty special events, many geared toward families. Check out their website to see a list of these events and find out more.

The Jug Bay Sanctuary is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
