About This Blog

This blog is your one stop shop for resources for your Estuary Chesapeake field trip. Check in before and after your trip for important and useful information for parents, teachers, and students alike.  This blog is evolving and therefore is still under construction!  Thank you for your patience.

The Estuary Chesapeake blog is an exchange between teachers, parents, SERC staff, and students. Since a field trip to SERC takes a lot of planning and coordination, it helps us if we are all on the same page, and helps you if everything is in one place. And since parents and teachers become experts for a day, this blog is geared towards streamlining the process of acquiring materials and learning concepts. Here are some of the things our blog features:


Confused about how to get to SERC? Want more information about the station you will be leading? Want to know more about other programs at SERC? Check out the For Parents tab on the menu at the top of the page!


Want printable versions of the Estuary Chesapeake Manual for your teachers and chaperons? Want checklists of things to do before, during, and after your trip? How about a printable version of the Exploring the Chesapeake Workbook, a packet chock full of information to teach your students before and after your trip? Then check out the For Teachers tab on the menu at the top of the homepage!


Need to print something quickly? Go straight to the Downloadable Documents page. Feel like exploring? Check out our post on the home page, or scan through the photo gallery.

Also, one of the best features of this blog is the archive of all data collected at Estuary Chesapeake field trips. You can find recent data here and view past school-year data here.

And don’t forget to keep checking back, we post useful articles, lessons, activities, and announcements on the homepage.

If this is your first time checking out the Estuary Chesapeake program, make sure you explore our website, too. Our blog is a centralized place for important resources and materials, but also a dynamic space for updates and communication.
