Upward Bound Marine & Estuarine Program
The Upward Bound Program is coordinated by the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, an historically-black university, and the Maryland Coastal Bays Program. The program targets minority high school students and provides a variety of experiences for the group throughout the school year. Program partners include Assateague Island National Seashore, Assateague State Park, MD Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and more. The year-round academic program in marine and estuarine science is offered to minority high school students from the lower Eastern Shore. The overarching theme of the enrichment program is "Protecting, Restoring, and Sustaining Green Infrastructure." For information from UMES please click here.
