Visit Us

Notice: The SERC campus and trails will be closed to the public for winter forest management on the following Saturdays: Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14, 21, and 28, and Jan. 4, 11, 18 and 25.

Welcome to SERC!

We have multiple ways that the public can visit us and get involved with SERC's mission. As the largest block of contiguous preserved land  and the largest site of public access on the Western shore of the Chesapeake Bay, we have several miles of walking/hiking trails and public access to the water for kayak launching. 


SERC is open Monday-Saturday from 8:30am-4:30pm
We are closed on federal holidays.

We love animals, but we ask that you leave your pets at home because we are an active research facility and a wildlife sanctuary.
