Horn Point Laboratory


Engaging area residents is part of the Horn Point Laboratory's environmental research mission. A world-class research facility located right on the Eastern Shore, HPL strives to take what we learn in the lab into our local community.

By volunteering at the lab, visiting our campus and oyster hatchery for tours and open houses, or inviting an expert from our Speakers Bureau to speak at your event, area residents go behind the scenes and learn from some of the best and brightest in the environmental research field.

Horn Point Laboratory also fosters the community's involvement in restoring the Chesapeake Bay through its Chesapeake Champion award and an oyster shell recycling program.
