July 1 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 2:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until July 29, 2021

Delmarva Birding Weekends is teaming up with Harriet Tubman Tours and River Run Cruises this July to offer Birding and Boating Tours on the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway!

During the first two hours of the guided, self-driven tour, you’ll learn about the many daring escapes led by the famed freedom seeker and human rights activist known as “The Moses of Her People,” Harriet Tubman. In Caroline County, Harriet Tubman found shelter and assistance as she traveled along the Underground Railroad to Delaware.

The driving route courses through the farms, forests and significant Underground Railroad sites of Caroline County until you arrive at River Run Cruises in Denton, MD. From there, you’ll explore the upper reaches of the Choptank River during a two-hour cruise aboard a pontoon boat. Downriver, landings and points along the Choptank served as sites for perilous escapes by boat. The shallow waters of the Upper Choptank provided crossings for freedom seekers heading north towards Sandtown, DE.
