Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay has many local animal and plant species which are endangered from pollution and toxins in the water and estuaries. Maryland Environmental Service has many projects in place which help create barriers from these elements, and help the species thrive. We have many local tours which visit these small islands and areas around the bay.
If your family, company, school or class would like more information for one of the many tours available, please choose a tour below and register today!
Important Tour Information: Starting immediately, public access to the Cox Creek Dredged Material Containment Facility and Swan Creek Wetlands are strictly prohibited, due to the start of construction of the Cox Creek expansion project. This restriction is being put in place for your safety and well-being as heavy equipment will be mobilizing on the site during normal operating hours, Monday - Friday. Construction and elevation of the dikes is expected to last until 2025, based on the current schedule. However, we are working to identify alternative access options to the wetlands area during the construction period and will keep you informed when the area becomes accessible to the public. In the meantime, we hope you will consider visiting one of our other local sites, like Masonville Cove.
