Horn Point Lab Tour Tuesdays
Horn Point Laboratory invites the community to visit the scientific research laboratory. The 90-minute walking tour is free and open to the public. Learn about the Chesapeake Bay, its health and the vital role of Horn Point science. Graduate students will give you a behind-the-scenes tour of HPL. You will explore oysters in the Atlantic Coast’s largest hatchery, physical oceanography, coastal re- silience, water quality, and more. When you arrive at Horn Point Laboratory, located at 2020 Horns Point Road in Cambridge, turn onto the campus lane and take the first right to the Coastal Science Building. Park in the lot and enter at visitor reception. Tours are held at 10 a.m. every Tuesday through the end of August. Tours are on foot and best suited for children age 10 and older. Special tours, including those held on Saturday, can be arranged with two weeks notice, depending on availability of tour guides.
