Kelley Cox Founder and Executive Director

pwec-logo-250Kelley Phillips-Cox is the founder, president and executive director and a Marine Biologist who worked with various Chesapeake Bay Programs for more than 15 years prior to founding Phillips Wharf Environmental Center.
As part of a fifth generation family of watermen, Kelley combined her deep understanding of the importance of the Bay’s economic vitality with her science background to create

Phillips Wharf’s unique vision that seeks to combine environmental and economic sustainability.

Phillips Wharf recently launched a $5M capital campaign to fund the construction of a major new economic development and education center. Once completed, the center will house expanded aquaculture programs, advanced educational displays, and classrooms for our aquaculture job training program.

Thank you Aida Leisure for generously donating 2 kayaks for our summer programs!

This afternoon, Silver Linings store manager Ellie presented two kayaks to Kelley Phillips Cox of Phillips Wharf Environmental Center (PWEC).

These donation will help PWEC carry out their mission of "providing hands-on educational experiences aimed at revealing the effects of natural and human forces upon the Chesapeake’s flora and fauna."

Kelley explained that middle and high school aged kids will make good use of the kayaks during Summer camp programs and while fulfilling their community service hours.

Thanks for all you do, PWEC staff and volunteers!

A Brief History of Sharp's Island Over the years, Gary has collected information and pictures relating to Sharp’s Island. Recently he put together a slide-show, which he will present on 3/11, along with a sketch of the island’s history. He welcomes questions and hopes to hear some stories from the audience about this now-vanished island.
