Chesapeake Classrooms Teachers"There's Something Still 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." Check out this film student's video here

Striped Bass Video. Fishing Tales
From brook trout in the headwaters of West Virginia all the way to the rockfish in the brackish Chesapeake Bay, the critters in these videos tell the real story of our efforts to Save the Bay. These videos are perfect tools for project-based learning and STEM lessons as your students build their 21st century skills.
