The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science unleashes the power of science to transform the way we understand and manage our natural world.
By conducting research on today’s most pressing environmental problems, we guide our state, nation and world in moving toward a more environmentally sustainable future through research, teaching and public education.
Private philanthropy helps us to create a more healthy and prosperous environment.
Your gift supports our efforts to:
- Restore the Chesapeake Bay, foster abundant crab and oyster harvests and ensure water quality
- Nurture a new generation of marine and land-based scientists through graduate fellowships at our five laboratories
- Address the science behind global climate change and its impact on coastal communities and people worldwide
- Discover uses for marine life to advance medicine, identify new energy sources and improve food harvests.
Help us continue our important work to preserve a healthy environment through sound research and education. Check out our 2012 Annual Report.
