Partnerships To Take You Further
We believe that partnering with like-minded organizations benefits ALL of us. Partnerships allow us to cross pollinate programs–reaching a broader audience and making a larger impact. The partners listed below highlight the relationships we have built. Where financial support is required to participate in their programs, CSH2O may be able to provide.
Annapolis Maritime Museum
Annapolis Maritime Museum (AMM), located in Annapolis Maryland offers field trips and other educational opportunities for all grade levels. AMM takes a leading role to ensure that area students receive high-quality, meaningful environmental experiences. AMM strives to connect people to the place they live and the environment around them. It is this connection that is necessary to foster a strong environmental ethic and sense of stewardship.
Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center
CBEC is deeply committed to environmental sustainability by providing opportunities to all people desiring authentic outdoor recreational and educational experiences that contribute to the health of the Bay. Their goals are to provide equitable access to nature, to produce ecologically literate citizens through “hands-on, feet-wet” educational experiences, to inspire a love for nature and a sense of stewardship through volunteer opportunities and to encourage the exploration of the natural world through recreational activities that enhance the quality of life.
Living Classrooms at Masonville Cove
Living Classrooms at Masonville Cove offers programs to all grade levels. Located in South Baltimore, Masonville Cove is the nation’s first Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership, home to a green building nature center and beautiful waterfront public trails. While on campus, you may spot nesting bald eagles and many other spices of birds. You will also see that Captain Trash Wheel is docked here and is credited for collecting tons of trash from the waterways in and near Baltimore City. Read more about the trash wheels here.
Himmels Landscape & Garden Center
We partner with Himmels Landscape & Garden Center, a local nursery business, to provide outdoor education to students and adults on a variety of environmental topics.
Horn Point Laboratory
