Program capacity: 28 participants (grade 4 and above).
The workboat Snow Goose provides a unique platform from which participants study the dynamic relationship between the Port of Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay's Patapsco River. Students investigate environmental issues and trends, often within the context of urban ecology. The Baltimore Harbor program is an excellent venue for students to learn about the fragility and the resiliency of ecosystems under the pressure of a modern working river.
Harford County Program: To meet the needs of teachers and students in Harford County, the Baltimore Harbor Program runs out of Havre de Grace during two weeks of both the Fall and Spring seasons. For more information about this option please contact our education scheduling department.
Aboard the workboat Snow Goose, students access areas near superfund sites, brownfields, waste-water treatment plants and power plants, as well as a variety of local industries. Water quality investigations are complemented by the sampling of benthic, planktonic, and other aquatic communities.
