Calvert Nature Society is hosting a juried regional art exhibit, inspired by the world of Southern Maryland, at the Flag Pond Nature Park in Lusby,MD, a member of the Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network. On Saturday, I dropped off my selected work called ” Grape Harvest” for Executive Director, Anne Sundermann, and her team to install. Further details may be found at: www.calvertparks.org/artcade.html
After you enter the park, the first building you come to is the Nature Education Center where over 40 professional artists will showcase their creativity for the month of June. Flag Pond is home to many different birds and animals, including egrets, terrapins, coyote and turkey. Outside the buildings, there are several trails to investigate, each with their own ecosystem- woods, cliffs, swamp and beach. Millions of years ago, sharks, whales, crocodiles , mastodons and seals inhabited the waters and shores of Calvert County. Today, the sharp-eyed visitor may still find sharks teeth and other Miocene fossils along the park’s shoreline. If you plan to visit the art exhibit, allow time to enjoy the beautiful trails and vistas, for beachcombing, birdwatching, or a relaxing day with nature.
