Delmarva Discovery Center Gala!

Join us for an evening of discovery:

Find your favorite exhibit or animal as you explore the Center & Museum. Try foods from local establishments. Single out your signature drink. Test out the dance floor. Identify your most coveted items at the loud and silent auctions. Look at some of the fun things you can bid on... a family membership and a bag full of goodies from the Salisbury Zoo, which includes a special wildlife encounter; beautiful pottery, paintings and other artwork generously donated by local artisans; and a bag of cool shark stuff from the National Aquarium!


Support your local Discovery Center; all proceeds from the 2015 gala will benefit the design and construction of handicap accessible touch tanks.

To purchase tickets, $50.00 each, please call (410) 957-9933, visit us at 2 Market Street, Pocomoke City, MD, visit any First Shore Federal location or purchase tickets online at

Must be 21 and over to attend.

Our Delmarva Discovery Center!

Delmarva Discovery Center Programs Start June 30th.

We have daily programs starting on June 30th and running through September 7th! Sunday is our Discover Stem Lab, Monday is A Walk to Remember, Tuesday and Wednesday is Mommy and Me (Daddy Too!), Thursday is Fishing Fun, Fridays is Beaver Lodge Story Time, and Saturdays is our Awesome Animals program!

On Mondays, join our naturalists for a relaxing and educational walk on the nature trail! Travel along the Pocomoke River, through the Cypress Swamp, into the forest, and beyond. Observe three distinct plant communities changing under the influence of their natural environment. 

Tuesdays and Wednesdays is our Mommy and Me (Daddy Too!) program from 10:30-11 am.. This program is specifically designed for children ages 2 -5, but all are welcome. Each program has a specific theme that relates to colors, numbers, letters, or animals. Make crafts, games, sing songs, and learn in a fun and engaging environment!

On Thursdays from 11-3, come fish with us at Steven’s Pond! Learn about fish native to the area – and if you are lucky, catch “the big one!” Children under the age of sixteen do not need a fishing license; all others must bring a valid license. We will meet at the Center & Museum, then walk over to Steven’s Pond. (Children need adult supervision. Please arrive no later than 11:15, but you may leave at any time.) 

On Fridays, from 1-3, join us in the Beaver Lodge for story time and craft making! Learn about beavers, their animal friends, and the importance of being kind to others and the environment around you.

On Saturdays it is our Awesome Animals and Craft program from 11:30- 12:15 pm. Turtles and crabs and snakes – OH MY! Come enjoy a fun and educational forty-five minute animal presentation on the animals that call the Discovery Center & Museum home. Then, make an animal related craft to take home.

Finally, on Sundays, from 12-12:45 pm, come join us for fun experiments in our Discover Lab Program! We invite teachers, students, and parents to also take part in our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math programs!
