DIRECTIONS: Terrapin Nature Beach Park - 191 Log Canoe Circle, Stevensville, MD 21666 Take Exit for Rt. 8 North (Stevensville) from Rt. 50. Make your first left onto Skipjack Parkway. Turn left onto Log Canoe Circle. Entrance to Terrapin Beach Park will be on your left. Park in lot and take the RIGHT side path. Follow signs down to pavilion at beach. Terrapin Beach is very important to KIBCU and its volunteers because of all the beauty it has to offer. The size and scope of the park and beach make it much more difficult to regulate, and trash is known to be hidden in the marshes and grassy areas where accessibility is not an option. Trash washes up on the beach from other areas and cities, and storms cause flooding that move trash and debris far back past the shoreline. The lack of regulation and monitoring by officials makes it a desired spot for visitors that wish to have privacy while fishing or relaxing on the beach. We believe that it is imperative that our cleanups take place on a monthly basis, at a minimum, to maintain the cleanliness of the park. **These dates are subject to change and/or cancellation in the event of inclement weather or other adverse events. We will make sure we provide ample time prior to the cleanup to notify you if there is a cancellation or change to the time/date.**
