Student Field Programs

CBF's Education Department takes students outside to explore the Chesapeake Bay watershed and learn how we can all take action to save the Bay. For four decades, CBF has given students, teachers, and others throughout the watershed unique outdoor educational experiences in some of the region's most inspiring places.
