The Chesapeake Biological Laboratory invites members of the public to its third annual Open House on Saturday, September 8 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. This free event is open to all ages and will take place on the CBL campus, which is located on Solomons Island at 146 Williams Street, Solomons MD 20688.

This exciting event provides a "behind-the-scenes" view of CBL's research activities, and is the only time during the year the labs are open to the public. Planned exhibits and hands-on activities will include an aquatic animal touch tank, liquid nitrogen chemistry demonstrations, dockside tours of the research vessel the Rachel Carson, piloting an underwater robot, and a Scientist Selfie Station. Children attending the Open House receive a passport activity, which allows them to earn prizes by learning about science as they navigate through CBL's different labs and experiments. Last year’s Open House was attended by more than 500 people. Free admission.
