Join us for a five-day professional learning adventure on the Chesapeake Bay or one of its tributaries in summer 2015. CBF is offering more than 30 courses that will explore the mountains of Virginia, the rivers of Pennsylvania, the islands of the Bay, and many places in between. Learn how to integrate the environment into your classroom and to help your students achieve environmental literacy success.

NOTE: Class Full? Any teacher who would like to be added to the waitlist for a full course can send an e-mail to chesapeakeclassrooms@cbf.org.



These five- and six-day professional learning summer immersion courses provide an experience that equips teachers with the knowledge, tools, skills, and confidence to use the local environment in their classroom. Teachers explore the watershed and examine the connection between land use and water quality through hands-on investigations, standards-based activities and assessments, and action projects.

If you have questions, please contact chesapeakeclassrooms@cbf.org
