Pleasant Plains Weathers The Weather For Environmental Education


Pleasant Plains elementary ventured out with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to the Arthur Sherwood Study Center in order to explore the Chesapeake Bay Ecosystem. They endured the elements of cold and weather in order to learn about the Chesapeake Bay and bay ecology.

Students dredged for oysters as they learned about the important role oysters play in promoting the health of the Bay, they used binoculars to spot a variety of wildlife enabling them to develop an appreciation for the ecosystem, and they learned about the effects man has on the Bay and ways they can work as environmental stewards to promote the health of the Bay.


This field experience along with the October visits to the Arthur Sherwood Study Center were fully funded by the Chesapeake Bay Trust as Pleasant Plains strives to instill environmental awareness in the entire Pleasant Plains student body. The Arthur Sherwood Study Center is the oldest of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's environmental education programs and is located near Meredith Creek, north of Annapolis.
