Lawrence Wetlands Preserve

301 South Mill Street, Chestertown, MD

SEF’s newest facility, the Lawrence Wetlands Preserve, is an 8.5-acre urban nature center in Chestertown, located within easy walking distance of the Holt Education Center. The Preserve features a variety of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems including swamps, woodlands, non-tidal wetlands, shrublands, meadows, and a freshwater pond. SEF is currently offering limited programming for schools at the Preserve while it works to create public access infrastructure on the property including trails, boardwalks, and a 1,200-square-foot Nature Center. When fully operational, the Preserve will host programs that focus on the connection between land use and the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
