Bay Day with Maryland Coastal Bays Program

Sunday, May 15, 2022 - 10:00am to 2:00pm

Pre-Order books for pick up at this event - here are some nature theme suggestions!




Bay Day is back and will be better than ever! Come out to White Horse Park in Ocean Pines on Sunday, May 15 to see the amazing organizations working to protect our watershed and learn how you can make a difference in your own backyard.

Festivities will be happening from 10:00am to 2:00pm, so come for an hour or stay all day! We will have something for everyone... hands-on educational activities at every booth, live music, food trucks, free boat rides on the St. Martin, and more! And the workshop pavilion will be back again this year!

The Ocean Pines Association and the Maryland Coastal Bays Program host this fun-filled educational day to highlight how watershed residents can make a positive impact in our Coastal Bays. We will post regular updates on this page, including the list of exhibitors!

Go Green OC will be at Bay Day to collect your compost! They can accept any type of food waste including meat, bones, dairy, fish, shells, fruit rines, and coffee grounds - if you can eat it, they take it! Freeze your food scraps leading up to Bay Day and bring it by their exhibit table.

Near the Go Green OC table will also be a recycling station! There will be big boxes to collect plastic grocery bags and alkaline batteries. When Bay Day is over, MCBP will ship the boxes off so these items can be properly recycled.

If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to email
