STEM Connection

Assateague is a beautifully preserved natural eco-center.  Technically speaking, it's a 37 mile long natural barrier island.  Much of it is protected park land.  The public can access a one-mile section of it for recreational and ecological enjoyment.  If you're lucky, you'll see some of the wild ponies and special birds that call the island home.

Ideas, Notes, & Tips

Seeing a wild pony or two is quite special.  It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does - it's truly magical.  Just be careful.  They really are wild...and they weigh a lot...and that combination can be dangerous.  Good luck with your sighting!
