Upcoming Events

National Blood Donor Month

Did you know that January is National Blood Donor Month? National Blood Donor Month has been observed in January since 1970 with the goal of increasing blood and platelet donations during winter – one of the most difficult times of year to collect enough blood products to meet patient needs. During the winter months, inclement weather often results in cancelled blood drives, and seasonal illnesses like the flu may cause some donors to become temporarily unable to donate.

This January, the American Red Cross celebrates National Blood Donor Month and recognizes the lifesaving contribution of blood and platelet donors. As the New Year approaches, the Red Cross encourages individuals to resolve to roll up a sleeve to give this month and throughout 2017.

Guided Hikes At The Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center

Guided hikes will lead participants on CBEC’s Lake Trail for a unique opportunity to discover several ecologically important habitats to the Chesapeake Bay watershed found on our 510 acre peninsula in Grasonville, MD. A docent will lead participants on a journey to explore topics of Hummock Succession, Oyster Reef Ecology, Salt Marsh Plants, Lake Knapp Bird Residents, and Resident Raptors all while walking a 1.5 mile flat path around the center of our 510 acre peninsula.  Each month we will be announcing a specialty topic for these hikes led by a Maryland Master Naturalist, please check our calendar on our website for these announcements.  Specialty topics include:  Birding, Botany, Fungus, or Reptiles/Amphibians. There is a half-way rest stop with restroom accessibility. Participants are encouraged to dress for weather and bring along a water bottle, small snack, and binoculars. Duration is approximately 2 hours. Trips are subject to cancellation due to weather or low enrollment. Check-in and hike begin at the Visitor Center at 600 Discovery  Lane, Grasonville, MD. Cost is FREE to CBEC Members, $5 for Non Members

All hikes are from 1:00 until 3:00 p.m. and a schedule of 2017 hikes can be found here.
