High Tide Paddle Tours
Paddle around Oxford’s coastlines with environmental experts to survey the variety and condition of both natural and man made waterfronts. The Oxford Waterways Paddle will include a leisure paddle trip through Town Creek. Participants will engage in a discussion about the impacts that climate change and sea level rise has on our towns and the natural resources they depend on. The paddle trip will be guided by experts from ShoreRivers and the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy who specialize in coastal resilience, water quality monitoring and environmental protection. Paddlers are invited to bring their own kayak, SUP or canoe. A limited number of kayaks are available to rent for $30/seat by calling ShoreRivers at 443-385-0511.

The Oxford Museum is the second of six Maryland sites to host Water/Ways, a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition, brought to the state by the Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street program. Water/Ways will be open to the public in the Saint Paul’s Pilgrim Holiness Church in Oxford for six weeks, from July 13 to August 24, 2019.
From Western Maryland to the lower Eastern Shore, our state is rich with water: it’s part of our history, our culture, our future. Maryland H2O shines the spotlight on it, through Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street tour of the traveling exhibit Water/Ways, the Smithsonian exhibition H2O Today, and engaging programs to spark a statewide discussion about water.
This event is listed as part of Maryland Humanities’ Maryland H2O initiative and #ValueWater programming.
