Program Capacity: 26 for canoe program (grade 6 and above), 30 for stream-based program (grade 4 and above).

The Pennsylvania Rivers & Streams Environmental Education Program provides canoe and stream-based field investigations across central Pennsylvania. Participants explore the effects of agriculture and other land use on the health of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Hands-on investigations utilizing water quality tests, biological surveys, and ecological assessments connect students to their local environment and reinforce classroom curriculum. Learners explore how restorations efforts and action projects upstream become part of the solution downstream.

Bring the watershed to life before and after your CBF Student Field Program using our curated list curriculum-based Resources for Teachers and Students.
