The cost to participate is $45 per participant, per session for CBMM members, and $55 per participant, per session for non-members, with registration at bit.ly/CBMM_FamilyBoatshop. Scholarships are available for participants in the Talbot Mentors program.

Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission. Serving nearly 70,000 guests each year, CBMM’s campus includes a floating fleet of historic boats and 12 exhibition buildings, situated in a park-like, waterfront setting along the Miles River and St Michaels harbor.

From now through 2018, museum guests can see the log-hull restoration of the 1889 log-hull bugeye, Edna E. Lockwood, with more information at ednalockwood.org. For more information about CBMM, visit cbmm.org
