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 June at Pemberton Park?

July 30th @ 9:00am for a ‘Composting 101’. Meet in the Pemberton Park main parking lot.
9-11:30 Lecture and Q&A 

11:30-1 PM Building a bin demonstration

Composting is an art!  Join us for a special workshop where we dig into the science of composting, featuring guest lecturer Jay Martin from Salisbury University.  Come and learn what can go in the compost bin, the science of invertebrates and their role in your "bin", and what it takes to start your own composting operation at home (or at your congregation!)

What will you need?  Just 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.  

Interested in seeing some of our other upcoming programs at Pemberton Park, check out this running schedule of events from June - September!  Stay tuned for more updates and events to come. 

We can’t wait to see you there!

Will you come?
