Making Our Mark: Youth Education

Watermark is much more than a local visitor attraction. Thousands of local school children take field trips aboard the Harbor Queen every year to learn about the Chesapeake Bay and our rich Maryland history. Each spring, Annapolis Maritime Museum brings Anne Arundel County students on board Harbor Queen to drop harvested oysters into the Bay. Watermark believes in teaching students preservation outside of the classroom.

Watermark and Annapolis Maritime Museum developed several educational and hands-on STEM programs for our students. Each of the programs encourage literacy about the Chesapeake Bay and its ecology. Watermark is dedicated to educating our students about our region, which is why local schools have relied on Watermark for over 40 years.

Off of the boat, Watermark continues to educate students on the rich history of Maryland. Whether it’s traveling back in time to visit where Francis Scott Key attended college, or immersing in the sights of the Naval Academy, students trace the footsteps of heros outside of the classroom.

Watermark. Making our Mark.
