This year’s Cecil County Wade-In was held in Charlestown! We learned lots of way to make the Chesapeake Bay a healthier environment with things we can do in our own backyards. Hosted by Charlestown while Elk Neck State Park has some construction done, we got a lot of positive feedback from vendors, organizers and attendees. There is some hope that we might alternate going forward with Elk Neck as hostees. We took our stroll from Foot Log Beach and made 27″ depth of water clarity before our shoes disappeared! The picture at left shows the wade-in from Foot Log Beach!
