Nanjemoy Creek Environmental Education Center, a school site within the Charles County Public School System, is located on 10 acres along Nanjemoy Creek, a tributary of the Potomac River. Thanks to a generous land-lease agreement with Mr. Calvert Posey of Nanjemoy, Charles County Public Schools has been able to incorporate environmental education into its curriculum at a beautiful site which contains many diverse habitats and plenty of opportunities to experience nature first hand. Our nature trails meander through a tidal marsh, upland woods, fields and river shoreline. The creek offers beds of submerged aquatic vegetation and open waters where students can watch osprey, bald eagles, great-blue herons and many species of waterfowl. NCEEC offers students the opportunity to experience the richness of forest, coastal, meadow and wetland habitats and to explore their own connections to the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay.
