As some followers already know, I have been working with the Assateague Coastal Trust (ACT), along with the fabulous Michelle Malinger, to enhance their social media through out this Fall Semester. ACT works tirelessly to protect and enhance the natural resources of the Atlantic Coastal Bays watershed through advocacy, conservation and education. After living here for two years I am quick to call the Eastern Shore my home, and recognize the importance of keeping the coastal area healthy and beautiful. Aside from being a group with a great cause, Michelle and I quickly learned that being assigned to ACT was a true blessing, as the staff members are enthusiastic, passionate and welcome all of the help that we offer them.
On Saturday, October 19, the Assateague Coastal Trust held its first annual ACToberfest Paddlemania event at Castaways RV & Campground on Sinepuxent Bay. Their action packed event featured paddling events and demos, great local food, children’s activities, live music, local beer, and much more! Even with dismal and drizzly weather, there was a great showing of supporters who came out to paddle in the icy waters, or simply for a great time! Here is a short video highlight of the activities that went on. I look forward to this event continuing and growing with each coming year!
