UPDATE: The fall of 2019 marked the CBF Education Program’s last season on Fox Island. Sadly, rising sea levels and erosion have led to a dramatic loss of the protective salt marshes surrounding the center and have made it necessary to close after November. As always, safety is the number one concern for our program participants. Find out more about the decision and share memories of this magical place.
