Every May SERC hosts a special day for the public. It's your chance to come see what we're doing along the shores of the Chesapeake. With researchers on hand to demonstrate field work and discuss ongoing studies, the Open House is a great way to find out how we're helping society face the environmental challenges of the 21st century.

There are activities for all ages, including hayrides, crafts and face painting for children. Please join us this May and enjoy a guided boat tour of the estuary, a canoe trip through the wetlands, a hike in the woods and more.

Participants bring their own lunch or buy one at SERC for a small fee. Because on site parking is limited, shuttle buses are provided from the free parking available at Central Middle School, 221 Central Avenue East, Edgewater (intersection of Central Avenue (Rt 214) with Mayo Road, one-quarter mile east of Solomons Island Road , Route 2).

The 2011 Open House is scheduled for Saturday, May 14th from 10am to 3pm. For more information, contact Karen McDonald (443-482-2388).
