Before it was home to our cities and towns, our Chesapeake Bay region was a simple coastal salt marsh—and it still is!
The National Aquarium education team will bring your students a new understanding of our region by demonstrating what life is like for Chesapeake Bay watermen, including an exploration of a coastal marsh, the animals that live there and the challenges they face. You'll discover the importance of this unique habitat, threats to its survival and how you can influence its future.
Bring the wonder of the aquatic world to your school by selecting this Chesapeake-themed National Aquarium auditorium presentation. The Aquarium's education team will bring the science—and the fun—to your school, including costumes and artifacts from the Bay way of life, and more, all coordinated to support Next Generation Science Standards.
