OPCA Board

Do you have some time to help Harford County's natural resources?

We support the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center, one of Harford County's leading natural research and education facilities. As you may know, the Estuary Center and surrounding Leight Park are open to the public and offer many opportunities to explore and learn about the Chesapeake Bay, with very affordable, family friendly fun and educational events all year long.

The OPCA Board is looking for a few good members. Would you have just a bit of time to help one of the County's best natural resources? Or can you recommend someone who may be interested?

The board of OPCA exists to connect aspirations to actions. Board members meet bimonthly at the Estuary Center for two hours on the evening of the third Wednesday of the month. Board members may organize, staff, and sponsor public events like the Halloween Hike, raise and manage funds in many categories to support the Center programs such as the summer research internships, and serve as advocates for our mission in critical ways.

OPCA, as a non-profit organization, can also act like a fairy godmother for the Center, supplementing county resources for programs and needs, and doing so independently and expediently, and the board makes that happen.

If you are interested, complete a volunteer interest form or contact the Center at 410-612-1688 or



Monday thru Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Sunday, 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m.
