Overview:

Mark your calendars for a festival of Bay Optimism, at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center's annual Open House! While it's no secret that Chesapeake Bay has its struggles, there's a multitude of reasons for hope: ospreys returning, blue crabs rebounding and seagrasses taking back their territory. At the Open House, you and your family can find out firsthand how we can continue making the Bay a healthier place. Drag a fish net through the river. Hold a horseshoe crab. Talk to a scientist. Discover environmental success stories that ecologists, policymakers and citizens like you make happen every day. FREE PARKING is available at South River High School. You can take a cruise on the Rhode River ($8/person; ages 4 and under free), take a hay ride through the forest, climb the weather tower, join an archaeology dig at the mansion ruins, and more!
