Open to Anne Arundel County Educators, grades k-12.
In this course, we will investigate the culture and ecology of the Chesapeake Bay watershed through hands-on, inquiry-based field investigations. Not only will teachers discover educational resources in their local area, but they will have the unique experience to explore historic Smith Island, Maryland. Throughout the course we will use art as a tool to inform our scientific and cultural studies, as well as, develop creative practices to foster environmental literacy in the classroom.

Cost: Refundable $50 registration fee
