The Stanley Norman, one of the last of the Chesapeake's famous fleet of skipjacks, provides an authentic setting to study the Bay's resources. Originally built in 1902, the Stanley Norman is an unforgettable venue for participants to dredge for oysters, test water quality, and imagine what it was like to work on a 65-foot wooden sailing vessel. Programs run out of Annapolis and St. Michaels, Maryland.
CBF instructors utilize activities to deepen participants' understanding of local ecosystems and give relevance and depth to the classroom curriculum. Our goal is to actively engage students and promote higher order thinking skills by learning through active experience.
Program capacity: Up to 24 participants (including chaperones), grades 5 and above.
Special Topics in Biology—The American Oyster. For high school, AP, and college-level students.
