Program Capacity: 30 or two groups totalling 60 (grade 4 and above).
This program makes use of an exceptional location between the shores of the Bay, the woods of Bay Ridge, the tidal marsh of Black Walnut Creek, and the local fields of tall native grasses. While experiencing the natural surroundings, students will survey the flora and fauna that make up an ecosystem's biodiversity. The Phillip Merrill Environmental Center itself is a model of 'green' architecture with a Platinum Award from the U.S. Green Building Council. It is an exemplar of the minimal environmental impact a large-capacity office buildings can have on the environment.
