Chincoteague Bay Field Station (formerly The Marine Science Consortium) is dedicated to fostering marine science education and research in audiences of all ages. Through school age groups including summer camps and college courses through RoadScholar programs Field Station staff introduces individuals to the coastal wonders around us. The Field Stationis ideally located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia between the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay. Nearby barrier islands are biologically diverse and geologically dynamic. Many of the islands and marshes remain undeveloped and area waters have sustained fishing, crabbing, and oystering for generations. Additional resources within the area include Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, Assateague National Seashore, and NASA Wallops Island Flight Facility.
