Jug Bay Patuxent Wetland Park

Jug Bay Patuxent Wetland Park


If you enjoy fishing or going out on the water you probably know or have been on this property, since it offers a small pier and a rugged canoe/kayak put in. With 43 acres of forest and wetlands on the water’s edge, Patuxent Wetlands Park is our second smallest track of land, but it is one of the most visited; about 16,000 people come to this park every year. Because of its high public usage and closeness to Route 4, this property faces large trash issues, thus Sanctuary staff often organize public cleanups. We welcome you to participate in these clean ups to help us keep this important habitat healthy for all the creatures that inhabit it.
