Where Pemberton Historical Park

Looking for an opportunity to meet others on the Eastern Shore, enjoy a day in the sun, and learn something new? 

Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake (IPC) and the Wicomico Environmental Trust (WET) are teaming up to bring monthly educational programming to Pemberton Park, just outside Salisbury Maryland.  

What’s Happening in August at Pemberton Park?

August 26th @ 7:30pm for ‘What's in the Park, After Dark!’.  
7:30pm in the Pemberton Park main parking lot.

A whole word comes alive at sun down.  Join IPC's Taylor Swanson for a special prowl through the park after dark in search of some of the Eastern Shore's most iconic nocturnally oriented creatures!  Who knows what we will see... or hear... but join us for this special chance to enjoy the world after dark, and learn about the cultural significance of what we see/hear. We hope to see you there!

What will you need?  Bring a Flashlight, a water bottle and appropriate attire for the weather!




Pemberton Park’s 260 acre campus houses a tremendous amount of history, and we can’t wait to help you explore it all.  Hosting nearly 5 miles of trails, Pemberton Park is the ideal location to  help paint the indigenous, colonial, and natural history stories which dot the Lower Eastern Shore. 

While out on the trails, you will encounter ecosystems and their natural complement of biodiversity specific to many different regions of the Lower Shore. Pemberton’s concentration of diverse biomes is unusual on the Eastern Shore, hosting tidal and fresh water wetlands, fresh water ponds, upland pines, hardwood forests and meadows all within the same site. This unique concentration of biology is likely what has attracted people to Pemberton Park for thousands of years.

We can’t wait to see you there!
