Maryland Coastal Bays Environmental Education Trip

The Maryland Coastal Bays Program has been protecting the pristine beauty of the coastal Ocean City region for more that 24 years.  On this trip, you’ll be joined by members of the Maryland Coastal Bays Program as you tour the Assawoman and Sinepuxent Bays.  You’ll have experts on the boat who will explain what the Maryland Coastal Bays Program is doing to preserve this natural treasure.  You’ll also learn about the incredible wildlife inhabiting the coastal bay region. 

A highlight of this trip will be a stop at the amazing Assateague Island!  Here, you’ll see the famous wild ponies that occupy this island, and you’ll also have a hands-on opportunity to learn about the marine life inhabiting the waters around the island.  Get ready for an amazing learning adventure.  Don’t forget the camera and the kids!  Kids love this trip!
