Annapolis Maritime Museum has been awarded a major grant of $247,471 over the next three years for its innovative education program by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The education program, called "MUDDY FEET" (Maritime Unbounded Damp and Dirty Yucky Fun Environmental Education and Training), serves to connect the students of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County with the environmental issues impacting the Chesapeake Bay as well as the cultural heritage of the people who work the water, harvesting seafood and processing it in places like the McNasby Oyster Co., now the home of the Museum. The curricula have been developed in partnership with Anne Arundel County School teachers and administrators to assure that they adhere to county and state standards. The funding supports Anne Arundel County's goal to graduate environmentally literate students. Maryland was the first state to mandate an environmental literacy requirement for all graduating students.
