Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, CBEC’s Visitor Center and buildings are CLOSED effective immediately. All programming, events, lectures, and building rentals are cancelled until further notice. CBEC will make every effort to reschedule whenever possible. This includes Critters and Cocktails. Our end date will be reevaluated as new information becomes available from the CDC and Maryland government.

Phones will not be monitored so please contact staff by email if needed. All contact information can be found here:
