The Plummer House is located on the Glendening Preserve, a 600-acre section of the Sanctuary annexed in 2001. The House serves as a welcome center to the Preserve, and provides additional office and meeting space for Santuary staff and students, and a CBNERR (Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve) representative. The Sanctuary has been a member of the CBNERR system since 1990.
