This program is based in the heart of the nation's capital at the confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia rivers. While aboard the Bea Hayman Clark, CBF's research workboat, participants test water quality, perform plankton studies, trawl for fish, and learn about the local features that impact the ecological integrity of the surrounding waterways. This is a unique opportunity to explore a hidden side of D.C., discover a diverse watershed of the Chesapeake, and investigate a habitat that few people are able to witness.
Program Capacity: Up to 28 participants (including chaperones), grade 4 and above.
