Join us for a fun and educational trip out of
Washington, D.C.

Please join the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for a fun and educational look at the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. aboard the Susquehanna, a 42' vessel used by CBF for educational programs. The Potomac River is seen by millions of people every year but few get to experience it first hand and explore what happens below its surface. While on board we will examine the organisms that inhabit the Potomac River and discuss how land use and pollution from the surrounding watershed have had an impact on the overall water quality of the Potomac. Participants will gain a more in-depth respect for this magnificent river and the creatures that call it home. Expect to see ospreys and herons searching the waters for fish, people enjoying the beauty of the river and a view of Washington that is unparalleled.

Get a taste of what 30,000 students experience each year when they join us on a CBF field trip!

The boat will depart from and return to Gangplank Marina, 600 Water St. SW. The boat is operated by licensed captains and is inspected by the USCG.

The fee to attend is $15 for CBF members, $20 for non-members. Children ages 10 and over are welcome when accompanied by an adult. To register complete the form below.
