Activities:

At the CBL Visitor Center, guests are welcomed by friendly and knowledgeable docents. A video briefly recounts the history of CBL's founding, introduces exhibits in the Center, and reviews basic principles of Chesapeake Bay ecology. Other displays depict: an oyster reef community in a large aquarium, SCUBACam (live video transmitted from an underwater camera from under our research pier to a monitor inside the center), BAYPULSE (llustrating new remote sensing and electronic technologies upon which today's scientists depend); internet access to weather and water information gathered and archived via the Bay-wide CBOS Network; traditional and historical research equipment; and oyster and seagrass restoration and its importance to the Bay's well being.

Laboratory Tours are offered on Wednesday and Friday afternoons at 2:00 PM. Space is limited, and reservations are recommended by registering in person at the Visitor Center, or by contacting Kim Philips at 410-326-7491.
