Midshore Riverkeeper Conservancy
September 5, 2017
Midshore Riverkeeper Conservancy (MRC) and the Eastport Oyster Boys (EOB) will host the end of summer Shaw Bay Raft-up on Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 4-6:30 p.m. This annual on-the-water benefit concert is a must for cruisers of all persuasions. Bring your dingy, paddle board, kayak, sailboat, boat and join the floating “slosh pit” behind the EOB Mother Raft. This free concert will be held in the lovely Shaw Bay on the Wye River. Donations are kindly accepted.
All donations from the concert go toward the operation of MRC’s new pumpout boat based at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. Since May 2016, the pumpout boat has pumped out over 17,000 gallons of waste that would have otherwise polluted the Miles and Wye Rivers. The pumpout boat operates Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, as well as on holidays through October 8, 2017. Pumpouts may be scheduled on VHF Channel 9 or by calling 410.829.4352.
Midshore Riverkeeper Conservancy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration, protection, and celebration of the waterways that comprise the Choptank River, Eastern Bay, Miles River, and Wye River watersheds.
