Education and outreach

Education and outreach are essential components in the fight for healthier, cleaner rivers.  ShoreRivers is dedicated to investing in future generations of river stewards through education and teaching the value, importance, and fun found on our local rivers.

  • We work in numerous counties in public and private schools with elementary, middle, and high school students teaching the importance of our waterways and how to care for them

  • We provide students with Meaningful Watershed Education Experiences as outlined in the “Stewardship and Community Engagement” Commitment of the Chesapeake 2000 Agreement

  • We assist teachers in completing the Environmental Literacy Standards set by the Maryland State Department of Education, encouraging hands-on and inquiry-based environmental education for students and teachers.

For further information on ShoreRivers' education and outreach programs or to find out how your school can get involved, please contact our Education and Restoration Manager Suzanne Sullivan at ssullivan@shorerivers.org or 443.385.0511.
