CBF's Education Department takes students outside to explore the Chesapeake Bay watershed and learn how we can all take action to save the Bay. For four decades, CBF has given students, teachers, and others throughout the watershed unique outdoor educational experiences in some of the region's most inspiring places.
Join us from late September through early December 2021 for programs including canoe, boat, and land-based experiences and investigations.

What is it like to go on a CBF education field experience? The Arlington Educational Television Department featured a student field experience on its weekly cable show, "Green Scene." See what we do and hear students, teachers, and CBF educators talk about the program.
