Welcome to our brand new blog: The Bay Blog! This blog is created by Chincoteague Bay Field Station, a residential environmental learning center and field station in Wallops Island on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Our campus is located right before the causeway to Chincoteague Island near the entrance to Wallops Flight Facility. A large portion of our programing occurs in the magnificent coastal areas of Chincoteague Island -- the marshes, beaches, maritime forests, and creeks.
We created this blog to showcase the many different aspects of the Eastern Shore and of our programs to provide information to prospective participants and for others who are looking to explore and enjoy the Eastern Shore.
Our focus is generally on natural, cultural, and historic events but we also hope to round out the blog with information about local news, good eats, accommodating campsites, wildlife sightings, and much more!
Thanks for reading!
