At CBGS, learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom, or on the annual field studies. Students participate in activities that supplement and enhance their classroom learning throughout the year. Students conduct trash pick-ups along Dragon Run, help with shoreline restoration, install native plant gardens at local schools, and participate in other projects to be good stewards of the Bay watershed’s natural resources. Students also attend outreach events to learn about environmental conservation and politics statewide. CBGS students are encouraged to pursue other volunteer opportunities, and can receive an award at CBGS graduation for their efforts (see our Community Service Guidelines for more details).
Some activities CBGS students have participated in:
- International Coastal Clean-Up
- Capitol Day
- Mattaponi & Pamunkey River Association Clean-Up
- National River Stewardship Day
- Urbanna Oyster Festival’s Marine Science Day
