CBF's 285-acre, organic working farm in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, provides both day and overnight programs that foster in-depth discussions about agriculture's impact on the watershed. Exploring the farm by foot and hay wagon, or canoeing on the nearby Patuxent River, students gain true awareness of environmental issues, to sharpen critical thinking skills, and to practice problem solving. Student action projects may be available. This meaningful watershed experience can be tailored to engage students in second through twelfth grade.
During overnight trips, Clagett Farm staff camp with your group. CBF provides tents and cooking gear. Day one is spent on the farm, day two on the Patuxent River, and day three on a workboat program or a schoolyard. These three days may be consecutive or spread out over several weeks.
Program accommodates up to 23 if canoeing (grades 5 and above) and 30 if land-based (grades 1 and above).
