Looking for an opportunity to meet others on the Eastern Shore, enjoy a day in the sun, and learn something new?
Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake (IPC) and the Wicomico Environmental Trust (WET) are teaming up to bring monthly educational programming to Pemberton Park, just outside Salisbury Maryland.
What’s Happening in June at Pemberton Park?
June 24th @ 5:30pm for a ‘Interfaith Summer Solstice Walk’.
5:30pm in the Pemberton Park main parking lot.
For many of our faith traditions the Summer Solstice represents a special time for personal reflection and growth. Join Susan Parker from WET for a special walk through the trails of Pemberton Park to hear reflections from local Faith Leaders about the importance of the Solstice. Come listen to the birds, enjoy beautiful scenery, and meet other faithful stewards doing their part for the Chesapeake Bay. Let’s reflect together on the importance of this environmental movement and celebrate what we can achieve together!
What will you need? Good walking shoes, a water bottle and appropriate attire for the weather!
Pemberton Park’s 260 acre campus houses a tremendous amount of history, and we can’t wait to help you explore it all. Hosting nearly 5 miles of trails, Pemberton Park is the ideal location to help paint the indigenous, colonial, and natural history stories which dot the Lower Eastern Shore.
While out on the trails, you will encounter ecosystems and their natural complement of biodiversity specific to many different regions of the Lower Shore. Pemberton’s concentration of diverse biomes is unusual on the Eastern Shore, hosting tidal and fresh water wetlands, fresh water ponds, upland pines, hardwood forests and meadows all within the same site. This unique concentration of biology is likely what has attracted people to Pemberton Park for thousands of years.

We can’t wait to see you there!
