EcoArt appreciate the art that is nature
Nature is full of crazy designs and colors. Find the natural art around Pickering Creek and learn about extreme examples from all over the world. Create your own nature inspired art through the lens of a camera, with recycled materials, and with help from a visiting artist.
Land Before Time see how the Bay has changed
Discover the Ancient Animals that roamed the Eastern Shore. We will learn to identify real fossils and make our own fossils and Dinosaur Gardens. Be prepared to think like a Dinosaur during our Pre-Historic Olympics.
Chesapeake Uncharted rediscover nature as an early explorer
Explore the wilds of Pickering Creek. Make your own John James Audubon painting and canoe our shorelines for clues like Captain John Smith. The week will be full of map making, games, and turning your own neighborhood into a bird friendly habitat.
EcoChampion anyone can make a big difference
Muck through the marsh, canoe the shores, and scout for the frogs, birds, and fish we need to protect. Make your own neighborhood animal friendly with feeders and seed bombs. Will you take the EcoChampion Challenge?
Nature Sleuth be the eyes in the field for real scientists
Spend the week helping scientists! We will explore the many habitats at Pickering Creek and record our findings online through citizen science projects. Test your ability at catching frogs, netting fish, trapping insects, identifying birds, and photographing animals.
Aquatic Quest a healthy planet needs healthy water
Explore the many water habitats at Pickering Creek. Get muddy in the wetlands, dodge turtles in the pond, learn to test water like scientists, and plant new grasses to save our shoreline. Always pack extra clothes…we will get dirty!
