CBEC’s Spring Education Programs

Every weekday each Spring, CBEC welcomes 50–100 school kids to our spectacular property and slice of the Bay. They have been learning about the Chesapeake Bay in their classrooms all year, but for one day, they get a full body experience with the Bay. Over 3,000 students will visit CBEC this Spring – our biggest season to date!

During our field programs, students are engaged in exploring the Bay and marshes, discovering the importance of oysters and birds of prey, searching the woods for hidden geocaches, constructing working buoys, and hiking trails. Students can learn about the Bay, restoration, and stewardship in the classroom, but these lessons are enhanced and brought to life by students’ experiences at CBEC. We could not accommodate so many students without the support of dedicated volunteers. Interested in joining our team of volunteer educators and helping to inspire the next generation of stewards? Shadow one of our programs! Contact Anna Youngk, Education Coordinator, for the schedule –ayoungk@bayrestoration.org.
