Get your feet wet paddling, hiking, fishing, sampling water quality, and visiting people and places that connect your school community with the Chesapeake Bay. Chesapeake Classrooms is a five-day immersion course that will focus on watershed issues in conjunction with the Maryland Green Schools requirements. During the program, participants will visit with U.S. Fish & Wildlife, Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), and MAEOE experts, which also fulfills the Maryland Green Schools professional development criteria. Staff will provide advice and guidance as participants walk through their personal Green Schools plan. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, supported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Geographic Society, appreciates having MAEOE as their partner for this trip.
