The mission of the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center is to promote stewardship and sustainability through environmental education and habitat restoration. The Environmental Center opened its newest facility in 2008, offering programs and series for all ages. The new facility is a teaching tool on sustainable building practices, serving as a model for green living on Eastern Shore. The facility also acts as a portal for visitors to admire the local culture through rotating art exhibits.
CBEC provides essential habitats for common, uncommon, and migratory birds. Grab your binoculars and explore magnificent ponds, marsh, forest and shoreline. Attend educational lecture series on the environment, or take self or guided hikes of the nature trails. Enjoy guided kayak trips, or rent your own for the day!
