From Northern Virginia to Richmond to Virginia Beach, CBF's mobile canoe rig travels to a river or stream near you. Trip participants probe the Bay's biologically diverse flat water to learn about the effects of creekside land uses and study the area's plants and wildlife. CBF staff travel to many Virginia rivers to canoe some of the most scenic waterways in the watershed.
Program Capacity: Max. 23 (includes chaperones), grades 6 and up.
