Ag and the Bay
Students venture out to Swan Harbor Farm in Havre de Grace, Maryland, home of the Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation! Spend a full or half day exploring how a working landscape is managed to protect the Chesapeake Bay. Depending on the time of year, students may participate in soil testing, forest buffer plantings, a wildlife inventory, water quality testing, pollinator surveys, cover crop assessments, nutrient management planning, and career connections. Based in issues investigation and STEM, this program can also be adapted for any waterfront farm that utilizes best practices for a healthy Bay, interested in hosting student groups. A perfect outing for an Environmental Literacy experience! Ag and the Bay can also be adapted for a professional development experience – please call or email for more details.
