Otter Point Creek Alliance

A​ nonprofit organization, created in 1996, dedicated to the support of the research, education and conservation goals of the Otter Point Creek Component of the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Maryland.


The Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Maryland (CBNERR-MD) protects and manages 6,000 acres of natural land​s and waters in Maryland. These areas serve as living laboratories and classrooms through which we address key Chesapeake Bay issues. We motivate students, teachers, and decision-makers to restore the Bay, and we give them the knowledge and tools they need to do so effectively. Our public and volunteer programs provide opportunities for all Marylanders to enjoy and understand the Bay.​​​​​​
