Saturday, August 11, 2018
1:30pm - 4:00pm
Living Classrooms' Education Dock at Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park
1417 Thames Street, Baltimore, MD 21231

Bring your family onboard our historic education vessel, Sigsbee, as we explore the Chesapeake! Think like ship captains and marine biologists as we sail around the Inner Harbor. Participants will work together to raise and lower sails, perform scientific tests, and explore the commerce, history, natural resources, and ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay.

In smaller groups, participants will test water quality, study plankton under a microscope, learn to navigate the boat, and dissect an oyster. Together we will trawl for marine life and identify and study the wildlife caught. Participants also get to compete in a buoyancy challenge where they build their own boats and test their ability to stay afloat.

You are welcome to bring your own snacks and beverages onboard. Please NO GLASS!

*Sigsbee is only equipped for children 8 years of age or older
*Anyone 8 - 12 years old MUST be joined by an adult
**Sigsbee can make accommodations for those with physical and cognitive disabilities. Please share this information during registration so our crew can prepare properly.

Sigsbee will set sail promptly at 1:30pm. Please arrive to the dock at 1:10pm so you don't miss the boat!

Children (8-17) $20 | Adults (18+) $15
