Restoration of the Bay and its rivers calls for strong leadership from government and business, but we cannot leave it all up to “them.” All of “us” too—adult and child—must learn to become better stewards of our environment. We at the Phillips Wharf Environmental Center believe that it comes down to making a personal commitment—a pledge to do the least harm and to help in the clean-up and preservation work.

  • Interesting and well-done. Staffed by 2 college marine biology students(?) that were great with our young kids. A good learning experience about local aquatic life if you are a neophyte to the area.  more »
