Smith Island Environmental Education Center

Smith-Island-Center-AdamDunnCBFStaff-695x352

Located within Tylerton—one of three watermen's communities on Maryland's Smith Island—this center emphasizes the culture and ecology of a Chesapeake fishing village. Steeped in Chesapeake lore and heritage, Smith Island is the largest inhabited offshore island in the Bay. Education experience participants gain insight into island culture to better understand how the community has interacted with the Bay for more than 300 years. Extensive wetlands, underwater grass beds, oyster reefs, and forests are easily explored on foot and by canoe and workboat.
