Philips Wharf Environmental Center

Phillips Wharf Environmental Center

Phillips Wharf Environmental Center's (PWEC) mission is to inform, inspire, and involve those who live near the Chesapeake Bay to take action by becoming good stewards of the Bay and its inhabitants. Through hands-on learning experiences it teaches children and adults how the plants and animals of the Chesapeake Bay are impacted by the decisions humans make every day.

The center offers many events and programs to engage you with life in and around the Chesapeake Bay.  From its signature Fishmobile, to activities on the Bay itself, PWEC strives to provide exciting hands-on experiences that engage your curiosity and spark your sense of wonder.

Phillips Wharf Environmental Center is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization staffed by volunteers. We need people who care about the environmental impacts to the Chesapeake Bay and its inhabitants. By volunteering at PWEC you will help us promote our mission to inform, inspire, and involve those who live near the Chesapeake Bay to take action by becoming good stewards of the Bay and its inhabitants.
