Protecting Anne Arundel County’s Land and Water

15th Annual Walk for the Woods Sponsorship Opportunities

Please Note: Due to the government’s restrictions related to events because of the COVID-19 outbreak and for the safety of our supporters, staff, and volunteers, we are postponing the 15th Annual Walk for the Woods. We are working with our partners, the county, and the state to identify a new date to host this beloved day of guided hikes.

Once a new Walk for the Woods date has been determined, we will make announcements via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and our monthly email newsletter.

Scenic Rivers Land Trust is pleased to announce sponsorship opportunities for its 15th annual "Walk for the Woods" at Bacon Ridge Natural Area in Crownsville. Scenic Rivers will once 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 is Anne Arundel County’s newest natural area, but not yet fully open to the public. The 900+ acres in Crownsville are graced with upland streams, lily-filled ponds, nesting birds and spring wildflowers. The day will be filled with programs, like the popular-with-kids “Critter Discovery” as well as close to a dozen guided hikes lead by experts with knowledge on topics ranging from wildlife, birding, native plants, history and archaeology, and more. Hikes range from 1 to 4 miles, vary in degree of difficulty and are on marked trails. Participants can also hike on their own throughout the day.  

Your sponsorship of the Walk allows Scenic Rivers to continue to host this popular, free outdoor community event that brings over 300 residents each year into our natural world, and ensures that we can continue preserving and protecting the open lands that make Anne Arundel County a vibrant and healthy home for us all. Your support is vital to our mission of conserving natural and scenic areas within the Herring Bay and Severn, South, Patuxent, Rhode, and West River watersheds to protect the quality of air, water and life that we all enjoy

The community loves this event and sponsors will receive recognition though signage, shirts, word of mouth and programmatic information. Please click on the "Walk for the Woods Sponsorship Information" drop down for sponsorship level information specifics.

We hope that you, your family, coworkers and friends can join us for a great day in our local, protected woods.
