CBEC is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting environmental education, research and restoration for the benefit of the Chesapeake Bay. CBEC offers unique hands-on, feet-wet educational programs for students from pre-school age into adulthood.
In 2003 the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center (CBEC) changed its mission and philosophy to reflect the needs of those living within the bays’ reach. The term “Restoration” was added to the mission statement in order to open the doors to new possibilities regarding education, research, membership and funding.
The Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center offers 4 miles of hiking trails for walkers, joggers, bikers and nature enthusiasts to enjoy a myriad of habitats ranging from freshwater ponds, wetlands, forests to meadows.
