Here is a sampling of the workshops that are available:

Intro to the Watershed

Join CBF to learn basic ecology and local natural history lessons about the Bay watershed. Whether you teach biology, math, or language arts, watershed information can apply to your classroom material. Learn how using oysters to teach history or how studying land use bridges the gap between geometry and geography. This introductory course also gives teachers the basics of safely taking students outside and how to start students down a path of environmental literacy.

Field Investigations

Teachers learn to connect watershed investigations, teaching methods for field studies, content standards, and inquiry-based lessons. Major ecological and social watershed issues will flow through each component of the workshop.

Curriculum Training

CBF's interdisciplinary classroom curricula are aligned with the National Science Standards and give teachers the skills necessary to teach their students how to investigate watershed problems and develop solutions. Our curriculum workshops adhere to state academic standards in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

Student Action Training

Motivate students to initiate and plan hands-on projects that restore the Bay's natural resources. Guide them through the process from idea to successful project. To help that process go smoothly, our training will also show you how to financially support your students' projects through grant writing.
