Pickering Creek Audubon Center is dedicated to community-based conservation of natural resources through environmental education and outreach on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay.

Pickering Creek Audubon Center is a 400-acre working farm on the Eastern Shore of Maryland situated next to the tidal Pickering Creek in Talbot County, Maryland. The Center’s property features a variety of habitats including mature hardwood forest, fresh and brackish marsh, meadow, tidal and non-tidal wetlands, over a mile of shoreline on a tidal creek, and cropland. Two hundred and seventy acres are devoted to low impact “best management practice” agriculture. The farmed acreage of Pickering Creek is its link to the significant farming heritage of the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

Pickering Creek is a successful partnership between Audubon Maryland-DC and the Chesapeake Audubon Society, a chapter of the National Audubon Society. Envisioned as a place to learn about the environment, and the unique ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay region, Margaret Strahl and her brother, George Olds donated to the Chesapeake Audubon Society in 1984. It was their wish that all members of the community, whether watermen, farmers, birders, painters, naturalists, children or adults would have access to the property. For this reason, Pickering Creek is free and open to the public 365 days a year from sunrise to sunset. On any day, you can enjoy a wonderful stroll through the woods and along the creek, encounter a variety of wildlife, possibly even a Bald Eagle or an endangered Delmarva Fox Squirrel.

Excellent Trails, well maintained with plenty of places to sit and rest. Great for birding along a variety of habitats. There was a Visitors center and office. Bring your binoculars!
