The Marshy Point Nature Center is enshrouded in nearly 3,000 acres of natural terrain from the combined Marshy Point Park and neighboring federal land. In this emerald oasis, a variety of wildlife including Barred Owls, Bald Eagles, and Red Fox make their home amongst the three miles of wooded trails and ponds. Hikers and birdwatchers can gather to see these creatures in their natural habitats or take a canoe out to the middle of the Dundee Creek and practice walking back to shore. Throughout the year, the Marshy Point Nature Center also runs activities including a spring festival with a muddy obstacle course and the Popsicle Plunge, which immerses swimmers into the Chesapeake Bay for the sake of charity or really sweaty tendencies.
