Third Annual Southern Maryland Reef Symposium - November 10, 2007

The Southern Maryland Marine Aquarium Society ( is proud to host the Third Annual Southern Maryland Reef Symposium featuring noted speaker and author Anthony Calfo on November 10th, 2007. This event will be held at the Calvert Marine Museum from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm located near the beautiful area of Solomon’s Island, Maryland. The pre-registration admission fee of $25 ($10 for students 12-18, $4 for children under 12) is available until October 26th; ticket prices increase to $30 thereafter and at the door. Included in this price is admission to the Calvert Marine Museum, which featues wildlife from the Chesapeake Bay, a petting area of rays, numerous interactive displays, as well as the history of the Chesapeake. Check out their website for directions and all the activities that are available.

The doors open at 10:00am. Check-in at the front desk to receive your Reef Symposium passes and admission stickers for the museum. Tour the museum and enjoy the “saltwater” tank displays of the local Chesapeake Bay (who knew seahorses lived in the Chesapeake?). There is so much to see and do here that you may want to join the museum and come back again!

There will be plenty of food for everyone as well as one of the best marine aquarium raffles in the state - sumps, skimmers, lighting systems, gift certificates - it’s all going to be there! Vendors will also be on hand selling live corals as well as dry goods at very reasonable prices.
