Phillips Wharf & The Fishmobile
Come learn about Phillips Wharf Environmental Center, a partner and host site of the Maryland Master Naturalist program.

We will talk about how environmental centers and naturalists can bridge the gap between conservation in the Chesapeake and a long tradition of unsustainable seafood harvest. We will be bringing live Bay animals and discussing how to properly interpret live animals to the public. Our aquaculture manager will also explain how we are using our oyster aquaculture program to train watermen in becoming oyster growers instead of relying on wild harvest.
