Homeschool students and their adults are invited to come to CBMM’s fall Homeschool Day, selecting either a morning or afternoon program to explore the history of the greatest oyster factory on Earth, the Chesapeake Bay, and how the oyster shaped the culture, industry, and environment of the Bay and its people. Participants will learn about a time in which oysters lay thick as stones through maps, activities, and giant oyster shells; hear the tales of the Oyster Wars and an oyster gold rush in the cabin of a skipjack; and investigate close-up an oyster nursery’s crabs, fish, and baby mollusks. Families are encouraged to bring a bag lunch and picnic on campus. The Campus Challenge scavenger hunt will also be available for families to explore other museum highlights at their own pace. Individual families and co-op groups alike are welcome to attend.
