Masonville is really two sites in one - an active dredged material containment facility (141 acres), with an adjoining campus (52 acres) featuring wetlands, trails, and an award winning environmental education and community center.

The nation’s first Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership - between the Maryland Port Administration, National Aquarium, Living Classrooms, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service - Masonville Cove welcomes thousands of students and birdwatchers from Baltimore and all over Maryland each year. It encompasses a green center for environmental education, as well as acres of wetlands, nature trails, a fishing pier, and a floating dock where programs allow people to interact with wildlife - inspiring all people to explore, discover, and respect nature, growing the next generation of environmental stewards.
