2021 Walk for the Woods Sponsorship Opportunities

Event Date: Saturday, April 24, 2021 (rain date April 25)
Sponsorship Deadline: Wednesday, March 31, 2021

Walk for the Woods is back!

Scenic Rivers Land Trust is pleased to announce sponsorship opportunities for its 16th annual “Walk for the Woods” scheduled for Saturday, April 24, 2021, at Bacon Ridge Natural Area in Crownsville (rain date is April 25).

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.

For the safety of participants and volunteers, the traditional event will be modified to conform with state and county COVID-19 public gathering requirements. We anticipate a fantastic, safe day in our local, protected woods!

Bacon Ridge Natural Area’s 1,000+ acres are graced with upland streams, lily-filled ponds, nesting birds, and spring wildflowers. The event will require advance online registration and timed entry to control gathering size. Attendees will access the natural area via Farm Road (typically not open to the public). 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.

Your sponsorship of the Walk allows Scenic Rivers to continue to host this popular, free outdoor community event that typically brings more than 300 residents into our natural world. And, your sponsorship ensures that Scenic Rivers 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 improve the quality of air, water, and life for all to enjoy.

For over 30 years, Scenic Rivers has worked with county landowners to permanently protect nearly 3,200 acres of land through conservation easements. Once such conservation agreements are in place, we assist landowners in the ongoing stewardship of their land. Our efforts safeguard critical wildlife habitat in the woodlands and protect the water quality of nearby streams and rivers, remember and conserve historical sites, and preserve farmland.

The community loves this event and we are certain that many will be eager to join us for a beautiful spring day outdoors after a winter spent at home. Sponsors will receive recognition through signage, shirts, word of mouth, and programmatic information. We hope that you, your family, coworkers, and friends can join us for a great Walk on Saturday, April 24th from 7 am to 3 pm.

If you have any questions about this event or Scenic Rivers Land Trust, please contact the Executive Director, Sarah Knebel at 410-980-6837 or Sarah@SRLT.org.
