Open to Educators Watershed Wide.
How is it that the Chesapeake Bay – one of the most complex and dynamic ecosystems on Earth – can serve as the perfect context for connecting classroom education and curriculum expectations? Come along with us as we venture throughout the Rappahannock River, through historic communities, and into Chesapeake Bay herself to see how biology, chemistry, natural resource science, history, and culture are intimately connected. During this recognized VCU Marine Ecology course, we will see how a history of land use and health of the Chesapeake Bay impact each other, and expose how the environment can amplify your own classroom.
