Phillips Wharf Environmental Center is teaming up with Stewart’s Catering during the 45th Annual Waterfowl Festival on Saturday, November 14 to raise awareness for their annual membership drive.
Wild harvested oysters and Chesapeake Gold oysters will be for sale along with pulled pork sandwiches. Representatives from Phillips Wharf will be on hand to answer questions about their planned educational center and new sustainable oyster aquaculture program. They’ll also share information about how property owners can get involved in their own oyster gardening efforts.
Stewart’s catering will give a portion of the proceeds back to the center to support their 2015 membership drive and annual fund raising campaign. Check Yourself Talbot, a community coalition that promotes safe drinking choices among adults, will provide free waters to all Waterfowl guests who visit the site.
Stewart’s Catering is located at 28 S. Washington Street (Formerly Julia’s) and walk-up customers are welcome during this special public event.
The Phillips Wharf Fishmobile will also be on site during the weekend at Easton Middle School, and admission is free. Waterfowl visitors can hop aboard the new handicap accessible Fishmobile and enjoy hands on encounters with turtles, horseshoe crabs and other native Chesapeake Bay animals.
Phillips Wharf Environmental Center is a volunteer, non-profit organization that informs and inspires people to become good stewards of the Chesapeake Bay through hands-on education, the Fishmobile outreach program and an educational lecture series. The environmental center is open seasonally for visitors to enjoy hands-on encounters with native flora and fauna such as turtles and horseshoe crabs.
