A new year is upon us and with the turn of the calendar, Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center is alive and bustling with new projects, things to do and plans for Bay stewardship.

Some activities for young and old include more education and camp opportunities. CBEC is working on a new STEM program supported by a NASA Cooperative Agreement for Education.

Countdown to Summer Camp

It may seem a long ways off, but we are already eagerly anticipating our upcoming season of summer camp! It may be the cold weather that has us thinking about summer, or it may be our exciting plans for new sessions like “Cool and Unusual Critters of the Chesapeake” and “Chesapeake Explorers Travel Camp: Adventure Edition,” plus hands-on nature play and exploration, as well as lots of traditional camp fun and games.

LIFE 2017, Now In Its 14th Season

LIFE is an adult stewardship/education program tailored to improve the quality of biotic life in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Participants attend 9 fascinating educational sessions and participate in site visits guided by expert scientists, environmental educators, and professional consultants.

Creature Feature: Tundra Swans

No, they’re not snow geese. They’re bigger and have a longer neck. That flock of large white birds you may see this time of year could be our native Tundra swan, which likes to visit Chesapeake Bay area farm fields and waterways during its migration from the Arctic tundra. Tundra swans, also known as whistling swans, migrate to the bay region in late October and early November and head back to the tundra in early spring to breed.

Critters and Cocktails

Join us for a winter evening speaker series of entertaining and educational talks on wildlife of the Chesapeake Bay Region paired with appetizers and beverages! The series starts on Wednesday, January, 25th and runs every fourth Wednesday thru April 19th. Appetizers and beverages sponsored by local venues will be served at 6:30pm followed by the presentation from 7pm to 7:45pm.
