Date: Friday, September 12, 2014
Time: 7:00 PM
Presented by: New Jersey Chapter
Leader: Mr Paul Serdiuk - 609-462-3593 pis9@yahoo.com
Level: Moderate
Location: Assateague Island, 7206 National Seashore Lane, Berlin, MD 21811, USA

Camp at the Federal campground on Assateaque Island. Enjoy a relaxing weekend on the beach along with some light hiking, kayaking and an optional group dinner in town. Fiddlers Festival or Kite festival are options. A planned full moon paddle under the Harvest moon is planned.

Assateague Island is managed by three official park agencies. Assateague Island National Seashore is cared for and managed by the National Park Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Department of Natural Resources. In 1962, Assateague Island National Seashore was established for the purpose of protecting Assateague Island. Assateague is vital for resting and feeding migratory shorebirds and other abundant bird species. Over 320 species of birds can be found at Assateague Island. The vast expanse of pristine beaches and sand dunes is exhilarating on the ocean side. The legendary wild herds of ponies dot the landscape on the bay side of Assateague.

ADDED ACTIVITY : Since we will be there with a full moon we will have a Moonlight kayak - please bring a whistle and flashlight/headlamp.

Contact leader to confirm trip participation and campground information. Participants will be responsible for their own campsite reservations. We are in Bayside Loop C, I am in site C-4; this campsite has a beach and easy access to the bay where we will keep the kayaks.

NOTE: I will be there Thursday Sept 11 thru Monday Sept 15. Join me if you can.

Assateague's north entrance is at the end of Route 611, eight miles south of Ocean City, MD.
