Environmental Institute I - FULL-Call for waiting list

July 28 – August 1 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Environmental Institute I is designed for young people who have a strong curiosity about the natural environment and want to learn more through hands-on experience. The Calvert Marine Museum and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Studies Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL) work together to offer this exceptional opportunity. Participants will talk with CBL scientists who have collected base data on the Patuxent River and Chesapeake Bay for over 30 years. They will review the trends, and then do water sampling and analysis to see how their results match up. They will map the shoreline from aboard the skipjack Dee of St. Mary’s and visit a shoreline restoration project at Cove Point and a living shoreline. The institute will conclude with team presentations for friends, parents, and colleagues about their findings.

FEE: $75.
Participation in Environmental Institute I is based on a competitive application process and is limited to 12 participants. The tuition is subsidized by a grant from the Cove Point Natural Heritage Trust. For information and a copy of the application: Download here.
