Site CGL06: Naxera/Bryan, Bay Site (Rt. 657 Terminus)

Description

This small, state-owned watercraft launch site is just upriver from the Severn River's mouth. Boaters will find good viewing of common summer waterbirds that frequent the river and diving ducks, loons, and perhaps horned grebe should enliven the winter scene.
