At The Holt Center

In 2016 the Sultana Education Foundation cut the ribbon on its new Holt Education Center, a state-of-the-art building that serves both as the Foundation’s headquarters and a key educational facility.   Only the second LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum Certified (certification anticipated in November 2017) building on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, the Holt Center is one of the most energy efficient and environmentally sustainable buildings in the entire Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

Visitors to Downrigging Weekend are welcome and encouraged to visit the Holt Center.   Below is a listing of a Downrigging Weekend events that will take place at the Center.
