Taylor's Island is a scenic, rural island located on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, approximately 17 miles southwest of Cambridge.  Approximately 50% of the island is a wildlife management area.  As promulgated by the State of Maryland Department of Natural Resources website, "The tidal marshes of Taylors Island have been relatively untouched by the development of small towns and villages on the nearby shores. This large island in western Dorchester County is a classic illustration of Chesapeake Bay tidal marsh habitat. Encompassing 1,120 acres, Taylors Island WMA is a mix of marsh, forests and fallow fields.

Wildlife associated with the marsh include raccoons, muskrats and river otters. The small stands of forest support white-tailed deer as well as sika deer, a species of elk that is native to Asia. Visitors may also catch a glimpse of the endangered Delmarva fox squirrel. Osprey and bald eagles fish the deeper waters nearby, while mallard and black ducks feed in the shallows. Buffleheads, canvasbacks and scaup are often seen diving for food in the waters off shore. Herons and egrets use the marshes for hunting food. Shorebirds, like plovers and sandpipers, use the mudflats found along the shores at low tide."
