Education on the Bay

Set sail aboard AMM’s floating classroom, the historic skipjack, Wilma Lee, to dredge for oysters and experience what life was like living on the water in the 1800s. Test water quality above an oyster reef and see what biodiversity lives below in this immersive, STEM-based program!

Come explore the waterways and tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay, become familiar with skipjack terminology and watermen tools, and discover your maritime history! Students will be actively engaged in water quality testing, map investigations, and Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE) concepts, all while enjoying the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Dredge for oysters, raise the sails, and feel the Bay breezes aboard the one and only, Wilma Lee!
