The workboat Snow Goose provides a unique platform from which participants study the dynamic relationship between the Port of Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay's Patapsco River. Students investigate environmental issues and trends, often within the context of urban ecology.

The Baltimore Harbor program is an excellent venue for students to learn about the fragility and the resiliency of ecosystems under the pressure of a modern working river.

CBF also offers two specialized programs on our Baltimore Harbor experience.

Urban Ecology and Environmental Policy: During this one-day program, which is designed specifically to offer field experiences for advanced students, participants address current environmental issues and discuss environmental policy through the use of industry-relevant technologies and techniques. Our field educators work individually with each instructor to design a program that meets their curricular needs. This program is suited for high school AP classes, college/university courses, and other adult special interest groups.

Aboard the workboat Snow Goose, students access areas surrounding superfund sites, brownfields, waste-water treatment plants and power plants, as well as a variety of local industries. Water quality investigations are complimented by the sampling of benthic, planktonic, and other aquatic communities.
