Open to educators watershed wide.
How can we make curriculum come alive with real-time data and explore how human and environmental health are tied to resilience? During this dynamic five-day virtual program, you will explore the Chesapeake Bay's cultural coastal habitats and iconic communities by conducting field investigations with local scientists, community leaders, and educators from the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration
and Maryland's Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
