KENT NARROWS DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION PRODUCES WATERMEN’S WAY HERITAGE TRAIL MAP AND GUIDE

 

The Kent Narrows Development Foundation has published a new brochure and map that highlights heritage sites throughout the Kent Narrows Waterfront Region. The Watermen’s Heritage Trail map and visitors guide marks key sites throughout the Kent Narrows Waterfront area that have historic significance. The map shows attractions such as the Watermen’s Monument, the Chesapeake Heritage and Visitors Center and Ferry Point Park.  It also makes note of the locations of the interpretative signs which line the many trails that connect the various heritage sites along the scenic Waterfront.

 

The colorful map reminds visitors that Kent Narrows is a walkable community, one that is crisscrossed by water, land and boardwalk trails.

 

The brochure will be distributed through the Chesapeake Heritage and Visitors Center, the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center, the Queen Anne’s County Chamber of Commerce, and at selected businesses, attractions and visitor information centers throughout the State.

 

The project was partially funded through the Eastern Shore Heritage, Inc. as part of a grant from the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority.

 

Those who wish to receive copies of the Watermen’s Heritage Trail Map and Guide may stop in the Kent Narrows Development Foundation located at the Chesapeake Heritage and Visitors Center at 425 Piney Narrows Rd. or email info@kentnarrows.md.com.

JAY FLEMING'S WORKING THE WATER BOOK SIGNING AND EXHIBIT

COMES TO THE KENT NARROWS

Chester, Md.-- (October 8, 2016): 

 

Residents and visitors to the Kent Narrows area will have the opportunity to meet photographer Jay Fleming as his exhibit opens at the Chesapeake Heritage and Visitors Center on October 27th. The Kent Narrows Foundation is hosting a book signing and reception from 5-9pm on Thursday, October 27, 2016. The public is invited.

 

Jay Fleming’s first book, “Working the Water,” is a visual narrative of the lives of those individuals whose livelihood is directly dependent upon the Chesapeake Bay — America’s largest estuary.

 

The book comprises photographs of seasoned watermen, scenic seascapes, weathered workboats and bay bounty — a true and complete depiction of Chesapeake Bay life. Jay’s flagship book, “Working the Water" includes several images of scenes and watermen from the Kent Narrows area.

 

The exhibit features select photos from the book displayed in large format. It will be on display Monday-Friday from 8:30pm-4:30 pm and from 10pm-4pm on weekends until November 10, 2016.

 

Local business and organization have come together to sponsor the book signing and to raise funds for Foundation activities. They include: Bridges Restaurant, Fisherman’s Inn, the Crab Deck, Harris Seafood, Harris Crab House, the Holiday Inn, the Jetty Dock Bar and Grill, the Narrows Restaurant, and the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center. The venue is provided courtesy of Queen Anne's County. 

 

A portion of the proceeds from the book sales go to support the Kent Narrows Development Foundation. The Foundation provides guidance and oversight for the formulation of a strategy to balance new economic growth, community redevelopment, support for the County’s fishing and seafood industries, and public access to waterfront activities and amenities.  The Foundation is also concerned that environmentally sensitive areas within the Kent Narrows be preserved and contributes to the character of this unique Eastern Shore community.
