The Center will highlight (1) the historic nature of the Turners Creek area and it's importance to the early agricultural trade of Maryland and how the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers served as critical trade routes, and (2) the natural environment of the Sassafras Natural Resources Management Area, neighboring Turners Creek County Park and the waters of the Sassafras River. The Center will promote awareness of the environment and stewardship of the lands.
