Due to the pandemic, the Calvert Marine Museum closed its doors from mid-March to mid-July. Our nationally recognized Museum Store was closed, we were unable to rent our facilities, and the Waterside Music Series was canceled. These closures and cancellations severely curtailed revenue, forcing us to reach into our limited reserves to keep the otters fed, the aquariums functioning, virtual educational activities ongoing, and the lighthouses properly maintained.
The museum is now open with a reduced capacity, however, we continue to feel the devastating financial impact of the pandemic. We are asking for your assistance today!
Please consider contributing to our 50th Anniversary Fund. In honor of this celebratory milestone, we ask that donations include a 5 and a 0. Examples would include $500, $250, $150, $50. However, we welcome gifts of any amount.
Show your pride in this gem of Southern Maryland and help us advance our mission. To make your contribution, please use the convenient donate button above. Thank you so much for your support of the Calvert Marine Museum!
