Volunteer Day - Fort McHenry Field Day

Fort McHenry Field Day: Saturday April 26th, 2014



Dress in clothing appropriate for the weather. We supply work gloves, but if you have a pair of your own that you prefer, please feel free to bring them. All participants are required to wear closed toed shoes, and please
keep in mind that your boots or sneakers WILL get dirty. If you have waterproof boots we highly recommend you bring them. We also recommend bringing an extra, dry pair of socks and shoes if possible. In the event of a high
tide we will have a limited number of waterproof galoshes available to groups working within the tidal zone, but please do not rely on this in lieu of your own suitable footwear.

Transportation and Parking:

Free parking will be provided at the parking lot located just outside of the gates to Ft. McHenry, on the left.

Once parked, walk through the gate--the registration area will be toward your right, beyond the grassy field.
Please keep an eye out for blue Aquarium signs and banners to guide you.

MTA: Bus #1 conveniently has a route that stops directly in front of the Fort McHenry gates. For schedule

      Next time, I'm wearing a suit and tie to the event. And a monocle for each eye. That way I won't look as ridiculous in those waders.

    I did register but I am sick as a dog and doubt I will make it in the morning. Very upset I have to miss out. :(

    I apparently didn't register because I'm not on the list. I guess I won't be able to attend after all. I don't want to make the drive only to be turned away at the door. I thought that RSVPing was enough. Oh well. See you next time.

    Ok Newbies. Here is the situation, if you are on the following list you are registered with the aquarium under the Newbie Group:

    Courtney B.
    Tony G.
    Alexis J.
    Kim L.
    Erin R.
    Katie S.
    Jessica W.
    Heba Y.

    You should have received an email confirmation. If you are not on this list, either you forgot to register as part of the group or you are not registered. You may come just understand that they will probably turn you away. However, if they do you still get to visit Fort McHenry, entry is $7.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
