Students in grade one from Pleasant Plains elementary participated in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation Clagett Farm program. Clagett Farm is a living model of environmentally sustainable farming practices. The farm demonstrated to the students the relationship between land use and water quality in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.

Students visited the beef cattle and chickens throughout the trip. They utilized sweep nets in order to participate in an insect survey and they investigated the forest by taking a nature walk with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation educators.
