Student Driven Research

We have several programs at Otter Point Creek that are mainly driven by students. If you are a teacher and interested in a project for your classroom, please contact Kriste Garman, Park Naturalist.

Undergraduate/Graduate Summer Research Internship

The Otter Point Creek Alliance and the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Maryland (Maryland Reserve) co-sponsor a summer research internship. Internships are open to qualified undergraduate and graduate students to conduct a summer research project within the Otter Point Creek Component of the Maryland Reserve.

Wood Duck Project

The Wood Duck Project is a cooperative effort with the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center, the Izaak Walton League of America - Harford County, and Harford Christian School (HCS).

Student Mentoring

Working with schools, like Aberdeen Science & Math Academy,  students develop and conduct their own research projects. Contact Kriste Garman for more information.
