St. Michaels Daffodil Festival

Daffodil-Festival-LogoCome see St. Michaels and CBMM in bloom for this new spring festival.

Sponsored by the Town of St. Michaels, Maryland, the inaugural Daffodil Festival has planned activities including a Daffodil Weekend Parade, Daffy-Dog Costume Pageant, Daffodil Garden Tours, and more!

In fall 2017, 10,000 daffodil bulbs were planted at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum– as part of more than 20,000 bulbs in the entire Town–through a newly formed community organization called St. Michaels In Bloom. The organization is dedicated to the beautification of St. Michaels. Consisting solely of volunteers, St. Michaels in Bloom works to create a welcoming and vibrant landscape for the Town through the planting of colorful flowers, plants, and trees throughout our business and community districts.

planting daffodilsPart of the national organization, America in Bloom, whose vision is to have localities across the US participate in community beautification projects, the goal of St. Michaels in Bloom is to see this community bloom in many ways.

Festivities are designed to encourage visitors and to benefit residents and businesses alike. St. Michaels Community groups, merchants, and residents show support through the display of daffodils and through participation in our Daffodil Festival Events.

Free Admission Weekdays in February

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is offering free admission Monday through Friday this February, thanks to the generous support of Free in February sponsors Shore United Bank and Awful Arthur’s of St. Michaels, Md.

During February, CBMM guests will receive a discount card for 15% off all meals at Awful Arthur’s, which will be redeemable through March 15, 2018.

Located along the Miles River in historic St. Michaels, Md., CBMM’s campus is a short walk or drive to area restaurants, shops, inns, hotels, and other attractions. Free admission covers access to CBMM’s numerous indoor and outdoor spaces, including the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, a working boatyard, and numerous permanent and changing exhibitions focused on the traditions, environment, and history of the entire Chesapeake Bay region.

Progress on the log-hull restoration of the 1889 bugeye Edna E. Lockwood is now underway and in full public view in CBMM’s boatyard, and continues through 2018. The nine-log bugeye was built by John B. Harrison on Tilghman Island, Md., in 1889 and is the oldest of her kind still under sail. The oystering boat is a National Historic Landmark and was donated to CBMM in 1967 by John R. Kimberly.

“This winter, come and experience the Edna Lockwood restoration before it wraps up in October 2018. Our shipwrights and apprentices are now fairing the new hull with the old topsides, and it’s incredible to watch the transformation,” said CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “We also have a great number of exhibitions for all ages to enjoy, and this time of year offers clear, underwater views of oyster beds, and abundant waterfowl and wildlife along our living shoreline and quiet waterfront.”

This winter, CBMM members and guests can enjoy several special exhibitions, including Robert de Gast’s ChesapeakePotomac WaterfowlingGunning the Nation’s Rivers, and Bob Grieser’s Lens on the Chesapeake.

Admission will be free weekdays in February for all CBMM guests. General admission is otherwise good for two consecutive days and is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students with ID, $6 for children 6-17, and free for CBMM members and children five and under. During the winter months, CBMM is open 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. seven days a week, except for Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Inclement weather closings are announced at cbmm.org.

Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission. Charitable gifts to the museum’s annual fund enable CBMM to educate and inspire the next generation of Chesapeake Bay stewards, and can be made online at cbmm.org/donate.

CBMM announces education staff promotions

CBMM_EducationStaff2017(ST MICHAELS, MD – December 12, 2017) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum has recently promoted three staff members in its education department. Jill Ferris of Stevensville, Md. is the new Director of Education; Allison Speight of Trappe, Md. is Volunteer & Education Programs Manager; and Matthew Engel of St. Michaels, Md. is Lead Educator.

“Expanding CBMM’s education programs is critical to our mission,” commented CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “These promotions help position CBMM for that growth, and with our role of helping children understand more clearly the history, environment and people​ ​of the Chesapeake Bay, ultimately more children will become stewards of the Bay.”

Jill Ferris is responsible for furthering CBMM’s mission by creating, evaluating, and managing innovative education programming of the highest caliber for diverse audiences of all ages. Ferris most recently served as CBMM’s School & Family Programs Manager, with prior experience as an eighth-grade teacher with Queen Anne’s County Public Schools, where she received the 2015 Outstanding Teacher Technology Award, and the 2014 Maryland History Day District Teacher Award. She was selected as a Master Teacher with Maryland State Department of Education in 2014 and 2015, where she instructed teachers and administrators on the implementation of inquiry learning in the social studies classroom.

Ferris holds a master’s degree in history museum studies from the Cooperstown Graduate Program, an academic division of the State University of New York at Oneonta. She graduated Magna Cum Laude, with distinction in the liberal arts core curriculum from Colgate University in Hamilton, N.Y., where she earned a bachelor’s degree and History and Secondary Education Teacher Certification. Ferris received Colgate University’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2008, and was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to Taiwan from 2008-2009.

As the Volunteer & Education Programs Manager, Allison Speight creates, implements, and supervises programs and materials for families, students, and adults who use CBMM as a resource, including the CBMM Volunteer Program, and Lighthouse Overnight Adventures. Speight previously served as CBMM’s Education & Volunteer Coordinator, beginning her career at CBMM as an education intern in 2013. Speight graduated Magna Cum Laude from Washington College with a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies and a concentration in Chesapeake regional studies.

Matt Engel has been promoted to Lead Educator, after serving for more than two years as CBMM’s Shipwright Educator. As Lead Educator, Engel will continue to develop the Rising Tide After-School Boatbuilding Program in addition to supporting school tours and programs.

Engel brings more than ten years’ experience in boatbuilding, project management, and training program development. In addition to founding his own construction company, Engel most recently served as Senior Programs Manager with All Hands Volunteers in Leyte, Philippines, where he managed and mentored program managers across multiple reconstruction projects. Engel learned the aspects of wooden boat construction at The Landing School in Arundel, Me.

Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission. Serving nearly 80,000 guests each year, CBMM’s campus includes a floating fleet of historic boats and numerous indoor and outdoor exhibitions situated in a park-like setting along the Miles River and St. Michaels’ harbor.
