About CBF Student Summer Environmental Courses
CBF’s Student Leadership course participants hike, fish, wade, observe, sail, seine, and paddle in some of the most beautiful and inspiring natural areas in the Chesapeake watershed. Through ‘teachable moments,’ our student leadership courses connect students with the Chesapeake. Memories from these experiences serve as an enduring motivator for our future leaders. They provide a foundation of inspiration upon which students can build professional skills. While some student participants attend CBF summer programs to prepare themselves as environmental educators, advocates, and scientists, these courses also appeal to students who just enjoy being outside and active in nature.
While CBF recognizes that there are many types of student leaders and that the effort to Save the Bay™ is watershed-wide, we have chosen the following eligibility requirements to more effectively support students after the summer course has concluded.
Student applicants must be:
- Entering 9th-12th grades for the 2016-2017 academic year.
- Active in either student government, a student environmental organization, or their school’s eco-club.
