The Center is located within the Chesapeake Bay watershed. This premier estuarine system provides unique opportunities for coastal investigations. We use science to find solutions for environmental problems in a socially responsible manner. Starting locally and expanding regionally, we work with the communities and organizations to improve water quality, while providing valuable experiential learning for our students.
The Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies is a center of excellence within Hood College from which we study all aspects of coastal environments and the watersheds that culminate at our shorelines.
