Join us for an exciting day in Sussex County!

Our day will start with an hour-long tour of Delaware’s newest hidden gem – The Southern Delaware Botanical Gardens. The Gardens are being built in Dagsboro on Pepper Creek. We will be given a private tour of the grounds by the Executive Director, Sheryl Swed. Please check out this video created by WRDE on the gardens.

Following the tour, we will head over to the coast for our annual beach clean-up. Once again, we will be cleaning up the beach at Key Box Road on Route 1 just south of Dewey Beach. We will spend time making sure our beach is clean for all who visit.

Our final stop of the day will be to gather for food and fun at The Starboard. We can catch up with old friends and meet new ones as we enjoy appetizers. A cash bar will be available.

All of this fun for only $5 per person. Sure hope you can join us!
