The Eagle's Nest
Book and Gift Shop is located at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center near Cambridge, Maryland. The store is managed by the Friends of Blackwater, and all proceeds from our store sales go towards the educational and interpretive programs at the Refuge, which include the Osprey and Eagle Cams. If you're a member of the Friends
of Blackwater, you will receive a 10% discount when shopping at the store.
Items in the shop include a wonderful selection of books on local nature and historical topics (such as Eastern Shore watermen and Harriet Tubman), photography, home decorations, t-shirts, hats, jewelry, children's books and toys, paddling maps, and a variety of eagle and osprey items. During the holiday season, we often have special sales going on, so be sure to visit when doing your holiday shopping.
If you're just looking for information on visiting the Refuge and spotting the wildlife, you can stop at the information desk in front of the store and ask the volunteer for help. They can provide you with the latest news and maps to enhance your visit.
