Peak at the Bay

Peak at the Bay is a series of after school environmental science labs for 4th and 5th grade students interested in the school’s watershed and its connection to the Chesapeake Bay.  Students explored the science of our local watershed through hands on STEM activity based labs while working with local environmental professionals and Spotwood High School Environmental Club members to determine the health of our school yard, our neighboring ponds and Cub Run stream.

The program continues in the summer with exploration of the beginning of Cub Run, a canoe trip on the Shenandoah to study environmental impacts and a trip to the bay to take a Chesapeake Bay Foundation program.
