CBECPublic/Private Partnership At Work for Bay Preservation

On their next visit to the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center in Grasonville, students and nature enthusiasts can enjoy a beautiful new beach pavilion, perched among the ponds, wetlands and trails the Center maintains for the public.

The beach pavilion materials and construction, were donated by Increte of Maryland, Inc., and will be used for environmental educational purposes. “I’m proud to partner with Judy Wink and Vickie Paulas of CBEC in preserving the Bay and our way of life on the Shore” said Jim Moran, President of Increte of Maryland, Inc. “Through public/private partnerships like this, we can create balanced solutions that work for both our industries and our environment. “

The Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center is a 510 acre wildlife preserve on Maryland’s Eastern Shore that showcases pristine habitat and develops restoration techniques.  CBEC offers unique “hands-on, feet-wet” educational programs for students from pre-school age into adulthood.  CBEC utilizes partnerships with private businesses, universities, state and federal governmental agencies to expand research and restoration capabilities while encouraging stewardship through volunteerism.
