Lockheed Martin's generous support of CBF's environmental education program allows students like those pictured above to explore and learn about the wonders of the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams.

CBF Staff

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.
