Join us for a high-quality teacher professional development course this summer! This is a five-day overnight course that begins in Delaware and traces the Nanticoke River to the Chesapeake Bay. Teachers will spend days nights along the Nanticoke and spend three
days/two nights at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s island education center, Port Isobel. Teachers will gain an understanding of local history, culture, and ecology through one of the oldest forms of communication, the story. The trip is designed for teachers to have
hands-on experience exploring their local watershed, while learning how to implement a meaningful watershed experience in their own classrooms.
Dates for this course are August 2-6, 2010. The cost is $150 for the course (includes food, lodging, and all education materials and activities) and graduate credit is available from Catholic University.
Online registration is available at www.cbf.org/chesapeakeclassrooms
