Perdue Teams with Phillips Wharf

The Fishmobile Rides Again!

Through a unique partnership with CBS EcoMedia, Perdue has addressed a critical need in the Chesapeake Bay by supporting local nonprofit Phillips Wharf Environmental Center’s Fishmobile program. The Fishmobile program travels to schools and events throughout the region to provide a 50-minute structured environmental education program to children all year long. Perdue funding is supporting the customization and retrofitting of Phillips Wharf’s new Fishmobile.

The partnership was announced during Bay Day 2015, a Phillips Wharf Environmental Center-led environmental education festival featuring information and perspectives on a full range of Bay topics, including living shorelines, native gardening, rain gardens, oyster restoration, energy alternatives and environmental stewardship.

Since its launch in 2015, the new, handicap accessible, bright new Fishmobile has been all over the state delighting children and adults of all ages. On instagram: #followthefishmobile.

Thanks to all the amazing partners who made this a reality for this fantastic new educational tool for Phillips Wharf. Watch the video for the whole story!

Aquaculture is farming and fishing

The Great Seal of the State of Maryland contains two figures symbolizing our beloved state’s founding and bountiful natural resources; the land and the waters. These two figures, a symbolic farmer and a fisherman, remain as relevant today in our state’s collective identity and political discourse as they were hundreds of years ago.
