Flag Ponds Nature Park

Flag Ponds Nature Park

For hundreds of years the forces of nature have reshaped the Chesapeake Bay shoreline of Flag Ponds Nature Park, creating a remarkable variety of natural environments -- from sandy beach, to freshwater ponds, to the forested heights of Calvert Cliffs. Today, nature continues to play with the sand, changing the park's landscape with each tide, storm, and season. Flag Ponds is also a part of Maryland's history. Once the site of a major pound net fishery, today the site preserves one of the original shanties and houses a fascinating exhibit on the Bay's old-time fishing industry.
