ESLC at Downrigging Weekend

Sunday brought blue skies, crisp fall air and tall ships on the Chester River for Downrigging Weekend, where ESLC volunteers had the pleasure to mingle with those who attended.

Thanks to our talented volunteers, Lynn Dolinger, Nancy Neely, Jane Scott and Bob Stanley, many more people on the Eastern Shore have a better understanding of what ESLC does to preserve and sustain our vibrant communities and the land and waters that connect them.

New additions to our information table were well received.  A challenge to match leaves with their name and a game to guess the correct weight of two giant pumpkins made for interesting conversation and fun calculations.  The pumpkin weights were 96 pounds and 64 pounds with guesses ranging from 43 to 650 pounds.  The great pumpkin was quite large but not as great as some imagined!

Look for ESLC staff and volunteers Nov. 11 to 13 at Waterfowl Festival in the Waterfowl Chesapeake Pavilion, a new exhibit highlighting all things green in 2011. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
