The Chesapeake Bay Foundation Student Correspondents Corps is a group of students who research and report about what's going on in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. From a student perspective, they explain Bay issues, tell student stories, show off action projects, foster student leadership, document nature, explore Bay history, and more.

This is a CBF student volunteer opportunity - CBF will sign off on service learning hours for involvement (you may need to check with your school as well).

Eric is class of 2016 at John Randolph Tucker High School in Henrico, Virginia. He has visited the Eastern Shore on long weekends for years and says, "Living in the suburbs of Virginia, sometimes it can be very noisy or very quiet. But I can always count on the Shore to be peaceful. I love to go out kayaking, just to simply get away from everything and hear nothing but the water."

She has lived in the area her whole life and traces her love for the Bay to her first school trip to Echo Hill in elementary school. She says, "We collected aquatic organisms to survey the different populations living where the Susquehanna meets the Bay. For the first time, I was on the Bay, in the sun, and I loved it."

James is class of 2015 at Annapolis High School in Annapolis, Maryland. He says, "I'll never forget those days over the summer when some friends and I just kayaked for as long as we could and then sat down at a small beach, watching boaters and tubers fly by, each enjoying the Bay. Don't you want to keep on having those memorable moments as you grow up? If we can all work for a cleaner Bay, then it can be achieved."
