Watersheds: Our Home, Our Life!

As part of a partnership between Clarke County Public Schools & Blandy Experimental Farm, this project provides a Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience for all 4th graders within the division during the 2015-2016 school year. 

See the links to the left for details about our Chesapeake Bay Watershed Project!

Goals and Concepts: 

- Provide outdoor-based, locally relevant, experiential learning for our students with a specific focus on the 4.5 and 4.9 Science Standards of Learning. 

- How we use the land around our schools and homes impacts the Chesapeake Bay, and

- Our watershed pollinators are important for our native plants and agricultural crops and they need good habitats to survive.
