Enjoy a summer ecology excursion on CBMM’s Winnie Estelle. Adults and kids are welcome on this up-close and personal exploration of the Miles River and its unique habitat and ecology. Learn how to monitor the water quality of the river, try your hand at water testing, and explore the critters on an oyster reef, all while cruising in the breeze on the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s buyboat. Birders will enjoy the route, which features a route near Long Point Island, known for its eagle and osprey populations and heron rookery. Families with children are encouraged!
