Students and faculty at Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School have been monitoring the health of several important waterways in our local area for many years.  Each campus of CBGS has adopted a creek to study and students from that site venture out monthly and measure a variety of water quality indicators at several locations along the creek. Students learn through the hands-on application of knowledge, get experience taking care of the environment in their own community, and give back by protecting their corner of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

This work has been graciously supported by a number of partners through grant funding and training.  We would like to thank: Virginia Environmental Endowment, Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund, Northern Neck Land Conservancy, Friends of the Rappahannock, and the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay.
