Leaf Pack Network — Engaging and Linking Students in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

The goal of this project is to provide meaningful watershed experiences to underserved teachers and students in the Chesapeake Bay watershed — including arming them with the knowledge of what they can do upstream to restore the bay — by enabling them to carry out hands-on, “boots-in-the-water” scientific and monitoring experiments, interpret the results, and share their findings with other schools.
