The Otter Point Creek Alliance

The Otter Point Creek Alliance is the nonprofit organization dedicated to the support of the research, education and conservation goals of the Otter Point Creek Component of the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Maryland. Ways in which the Otter Point Creek Alliance supports the Reserve are by promoting environmental education of school children and the general public, offering volunteer opportunities, supporting research projects, sponsoring college internships, and promoting stewardship and conservation in the Reserve and surrounding area.
