Shiver me timbers!
This year’s Floatilla theme is Treasure Hunt! Paddlers will be given a treasure map that will include environmental and historic locations in the Inner Harbor. Participating paddlers must follow the map and collect tokens at each stop. Collect all six tokens and return them to Canton Waterfront Park to get your event t-shirt. We encourage all paddlers to decorate their boats, boards, or bodies in their most seafaring pirate gear. Yo ho ho! ☠️
Mr Trash Wheel
Using The Power Of Nature To Keep Our Harbor Clean
Mr. Trash Wheel is a semi-autonomous trash interceptor that is placed at the end of a river, stream, or other outfalls. Far too lazy to chase trash around the ocean, Mr. Trash Wheel stays put and waits for the waste to flow to him. Sustainably powered and built to withstand the biggest storms, Mr. Trash Wheel uses a unique blend of solar and hydropower to pull hundreds of tons of trash out of the water each year.
Eastside Community Beautification Grants
Waterfront Partnership aims to distribute $25,000 in small grants ($1,000-$5,000) to projects located in targeted communities on Baltimore’s east side. The program awards funds for projects that will clean and beautify public spaces and reduce the amount of trash and other pollution ending up in the Harbor.
