Sixth grade art students at Berlin Intermediate School designed tote bags for Maryland Coastal Bays Program event "Bay Day”. Mrs. McElhinny’s art students developed original designs representing local sea life that were translated into prints. The students were taught the techniques and application of the printmaking process in order to transfer their ideas onto the canvas tote bags that will be distributed to patrons attending the Bay Day event.

MCBP and the Ocean Pines Association is sponsoring Bay Day at Ocean Pines on Sunday, May 20, 2018, 11:30 a.m. until 3:30 pm at White Horse Park, 235 Ocean Parkway. The event includes bay boat rides, educational discussions, hands-on activities, environmental speakers, self-guided nature hikes, crafts, foods, and music. More information may be found at

The Maryland Coastal Bays Program exists to protect and conserve the waters and surrounding watershed of Maryland’s coastal bays to enhance their ecological values and sustainable use for both present and future generations.
