Chincoteague Bay Field Station

rs-retreats-logo.png

 

The Chincoteague Bay Field Station has been the gateway to discovery for Road Scholar adventurers on Virginia’s Eastern Shore for years. The stars of discovery are myriad: the famous Chincoteague ponies; the 30 acres of salt marsh; the dozens of species of birds that pass through this flyway; the horseshoe crabs whose secrets are gleaned by young learners on Grandparent adventures. This is an exceptional marine environment that comes alive to Road Scholars through hands-on education and the knowledge of an exceptional array of experts.
