Tiffany Butler is a homegrown Annapolitan from the community of Parole. She is a lover of all things outdoors, and a self-described ‘water baby’ -- a trait she affectionately says she inherited from her father. “I’m always water-adjacent in one way or another,” says Tiffany.
She is also a career academic. Currently conquering both a post-master’s certificate in administration supervision at Loyola University and a PhD program in education from George Mason University, Tiffany is also in her fifth year as a biology teacher at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in upper Fells Point, Baltimore.
We have a lot happening this Summer & Fall and are looking for volunteers! Come paddle with our local Veteran groups and underserved youth. For those that want to stay on land, you can build oyster cages with us for our new Full-Service Marylanders Grow Oysters (MGO) Program.
It is REQUIRED for the Wai Koa (Veteran programs) and Junior Wai Koa (underserved youth programs) you be a seasoned paddler as we will be paddling with those who require extra assistance. Paddling equipment will be provided for you at no cost.
We are honored to be chosen by the Eastport Civic Association to receive a grant that will support our Junior Wai Koa program this summer! This specific program will focus on engaging the Eastport Terrace and Harbor House youth in water safety, swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking and environmental education.
The uncertainty around the COVID 19 pandemic interrupted the expansion of our 2020 programmatic initiatives; however, since our programs are conducted outdoors, we were fortunate to still be able to make an impact in our communities. Bridge Over Troubled Water is an overview of the organizations accomplishments this year and a preview of what we have in store for 2021.
