The Ward Museum features the world’s largest public collection of decorative and antique decoys. The artwork allows visitors a glimpse of the beauty of wildfowl from around the world.
The Delmarva Discovery Center is a living museum for the public that shows preservation and interpretation of cultural and natural heritage. The exhibits take visitors on a journey through Delmarva and through the Cypress Swamp. The exhibits focus on the river ecology and the human history of the Pocomoke River and Delmarva.
The purpose of GreenSBY is to establish and maintain landscapes and gardens around the community. The group also wants to spread the knowledge to future gardeners and build edible landscapes while supporting local farmers.
