There is also an amphitheater and a set of trails linking education stations used for outdoor school, scout and other programs. A demonstration marsh was recently constructed and planted with native saltmarsh plants. Shellmaker Island is also the home of the ROOTS Program native plant nursery.
Note: A new dock and bulkhead are currently being installed. Work will be completed in April 2011. Until then Marine Life Inventories and other outdoor programs are on hold.
