Map and Directions


In partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, AIMS, VAIS, and The Gunston School, and back for its fourth year, this is a three-day opportunity for networking, sharing ideas, and immersion in the field of environmental education and leadership across the Chesapeake Bay watershed region.

How can independent school leaders most effectively support the integration of high-impact environmental education within their schools?  Spend three exciting days exploring how school leaders can further their school’s “environmental mission."

CBF 2017 PhotoLearn how to effectively design and implement high-impact environmental education curriculum, and understand the fundamentals of environmental strategic planning. Participants will also learn how a school’s campus and facilities can serve as an integrating context for environmental teaching and learning.  Join us in hands-on investigations and learn about opportunities to create or expand a green school program.

Who is this course open to? Independent school administrators, trustees, lead teachers, department chairs, and those in a position to effect change within their school.

“A big picture focus on why we do environmental education and organizing a vision for institutional-level work (not just individual lessons on the environment, but systemic prioritization of the work at the principal and/or Board of Trustee level)”
- Liz Bullock, Green Acres School, 2018 participant

The cost is $50. Space is limited!
