This program is based in the heart of the nation's capital at the confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia rivers. While aboard the Susquehanna, CBF's 42-foot 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 25 participants (including chaperones), grade 4 and above.

There's Still Something Worth Saving in the Potomac River

High schooler and outdoor enthusiast Maria Kellam was inspired to make this video of CBF's Potomac River Program as part of her Gold Award with the Girl Scouts. Kellam's extraordinary video shows the importance of connecting with and protecting our waters and that there's "still something worth saving in the river."
