Phillips Wharf Environmental Center (PWEC) is holding their first dinner and auction on August 14 at the Tilghman Fire Hall from 5 to 9 pm. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on over 100 fabulous items, including
several dinners for two at several superb area restaurants. Other exciting auctions items include antique wicker chairs, espresso machine, television, air conditioner and telescope.
Phillips Wharf Environmental Center is a not-for-profit entity founded in 2007 and dedicated to its goals to Inform, Inspire, and Involve people, especially children, about what lives in and around the Chesapeake Bay and how to help protect them. Located in the last crabbing shanty on Knapps Narrows, PWEC has live specimens on display to observe and even touch tanks. In 2009, PWEC acquired a mobile classroom, the “Fishmobile”, to bring an array of creatures to schools and events for a true hands-on experience. They are committed to encouraging learners to get their hands dirty and their minds open. In addition, they sponsor a series of discussion meetings for adults on environmental matters relating to our community. Among the topics addressed are wind and solar power generation, recycling and composting, and cultural heritage issues.
The Dinner and Auction are a major source of funding for the volunteer based Phillips Wharf Environmental Center. Tickets can be purchased at several locations including the Phillips Wharf Environmental Center , St. Michaels Candy and Gifts and Green Energy Design & General Store.
