"Putting a "big picture" focus on why we do environmental education and organizing a vision for institutional-level work — not just individual lessons on the environment, but systemic prioritization of the work at the principal and/or Board of Trustee level."
—Liz Bullock, Green Acres School
Through the Principals Environmental Leadership Program, CBF provides high-quality professional learning that meets the evolving needs of administrators and schools. The program supports school principals and administrators in environmental stewardship opportunities for their entire school community. Through experience, training, resources, and collegial discussion these key leaders learn how to design a school program that utilizes and benefits the local environment. Participants in CBF's principals program are able to gain first-hand experience on the Chesapeake Bay while strengthening their leadership capacity in environmental education.
Take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to network with fellow administrators, learn from experts, and explore active inquiry-based instruction for distant learning. You'll meet with and collaborate with your peers while forging a connection between your school community and the Chesapeake Bay.
