CBF Education Experiences: "They Take My Breath Away"

Image-3Photo by Paige Sanford/CBF Staff.

Baltimore Lab School Outdoor Education Coordinator Patti Child recently took her high school students on a CBF field experience to our Karen Noonan Environmental Education Center. Here's what she had to say about it:  

Just when I thought it could not get any better learning about the Bay from one of your educators, I went on an Island experience with CBF's Captain Jesse, Paige Sanford, and Megan Fink. 

Seriously, I should not be allowed to have that much fun teaching students about the Bay.

I have had the pleasure of working with your team on Port Isobel Island in the past, but the quality of facilitating just went up another notch at the Karen Noonan Center this weekend! 

CBF trips are the foundation of our Baltimore Lab School Watershed Stewards movement. I call it a movement because the students and staff swell with ideas and projects after attending CBF Education Experiences.

Storm drain teams, trees, native plants, stream surveys and clean ups, behavior change campaigns, school air quality education, Student Wave reporters, species field guides, photo scavenger hunts, photo essays, film festivals, speakers, mentors, student leaders, green teams, partnerships, energy conservation, 0-waste movement, recycling, outdoor sustainability labs . . . The ideas and energy are flowing so fast, it takes my breath away.

Thank you.
