Just up Route 40 from Edgewood is the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center, one of the few remaining freshwater tidal marshes in the upper Chesapeake Bay that is accessible to the public. Open every day until 5pm, the center includes many indoor displays and offers public, private and school programs. Activities include canoeing, kayaking, pontoon boating, crafts, hiking, education, animal encounters and research.
