American Shad

On these friendly shores you'll find games and activities about Mid-Atlantic maritime culture. You'll learn about the ways of life of people who live in the coastal area of the states of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina.

Meet fishermen and boat builders, duck decoy carvers and net-makers. Challenge yourself to the "oyster quiz" or design a shad Festival t-shirt. Find out what a skipjack is, and why Atlantic white cedar is such an important tree.

Follow the links at the top of the page to begin your journey. Link to the "Water Ways: Mid-Atlantic Maritime Communities" site, for a boat load of information.

Music: Phil Cisrow, Sarah Cisrow and Sharlene Smith from Port Norris, NJ sing "Stepped in the Water."
