15 mins northwest. Sun 1-4:30 Tues-Sat 10-4:30 This jewel of a park makes up for it's small size with impressive primordial fauna (bald cypress trees) and wildlife (various owls, a hawk, and a large albino snapping turtle) in the nature center with a well-maintained boardwalk. A pleasant place to spend an hour or so on a weekend or summer evening. This free sanctuary has a viewing room with some animals. The trail is well marked and the majority of it is on a boardwalk. Be sure to wear shoes that will prevent you from tripping. I would not recommend flip flops as there are not railings along the boardwalk but there are a few places to sit along the way.

15 mins south. For a good afternoon hike, birders, or looking to enjoy marsh ecology hike the "red trail" which is a 3.6 mile roundtrip hike to the beach with the cliffs. The trail is an easy walk, sand path, some small wooden plank bridges and a wooden walk way along the swamp, and goes through the woods. Be careful of the numerous roots and it can be muddy in areas. You cannot go near the cliffs because of the risk of rock slides.

The Sculpture Garden at Annmarie is comprised of 30 acres of forests, fields, and meadows situated alongside St. John's Creek. A paved walking path weaves throughout the forest and provides a serene setting for the large collection of outdoor sculpture. The Sculpture Garden is a great place to take a walk, or ride bikes, and is pet-friendly throughout the year, except during special events. Take time to explore the art and nature at Annmarie. In 1991, Francis and Ann M. Koenig donated this property to Calvert County with the intention that it be developed into a sculpture garden. Over the next decade, their dream took shape as six works of art were installed on the thirty acre property. These diverse pieces are fully integrated into the natural setting of the Garden and provide the opportunity to develop an appreciation for the seasonal changes inherent in outdoor art. In addition to the sculpture, the walking paths were created and the allies, or hallways, were cleared. The lovely allies allow visitors to look across Annmarie and have created areas for the installation of sculpture. In 2003, Annmarie became a member of the Smithsonian Institution's Affiliations Program. This program has allowed the Garden to borrow more than twenty-five pieces of sculpture form the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden. In 2008, the Arts Building and the Studio School opened, allowing Annmarie to dramatically expand its programs and activities.

Visit the Calvert Marine Museum and Drum Point Lighthouse and touch a live skate or ray at one of the museum’s aquariums and marvel at the massive 35-foot-long Megalodon Shark skeleton, reconstructed based on fossils discovered nearby. Then, visit the woodworking shop and witness the traditional craft of Chesapeake boat builders.

Find prices here https://chesapeakesbounty.com/offerings/local-seafood/ Maryland crabs are the best, and at this shop we sell Maryland crabs only, without exception.

Check out our new standards for grading crabs: *Our #1 Male crabs will now be graded at 6 inches and up* (industry standard is 5.5 inches, with some places offering 5.75 inches) *Our Truly Jumbo male crabs will be graded 7 inches and up* *Our Extra Large Female crabs will be graded 6.5 inches and up* As always, "light" male crabs of any size will continue be sold as "light males" for a reduced price From ChesapeakesBounty.com homepage: LOCAL, FARM-FRESH FOODS FROM THE CHESAPEAKE BAY REGION We believe in the health and economic benefits of local food, supporting local farmers, watermen, and other producers and paying fair-market prices (or better) for their products. Our goal is to find new and innovative ways of connecting local food producers with steady markets, while considering the ecological consequences of food production. With your support, we hope to continue building a local, sustainable food production network in Southern Maryland that is both ecologically sound and economically viable.
