26th ANNUAL ROTARY CHESAPEAKE BAY CONFERENCE
This five-day experience will provide up to 24 rising sophomore and junior high school students the opportunity in a setting of sun and fun, to learn first-hand about the Chesapeake Bay, its beauty, its problems and its future. Since the first settlers established communities along it's shores, the Chesapeake Bay has provided Tidewater Virginia residents a vast bounty of seafood. Today the Bay is still home to many working watermen, boating enthusiasts, sports fishermen, marine research, and commercial seafood facilities. The Conference at Christchurch school is a natural place to enjoy and learn about the Bay and its tributaries. In this setting the Gloucester Rotary Club has put together a hands-on experience for tomorrow's leaders to provide insight about the Bay and the real world aspects of saving this valuable resource.
Begins at 1:00 pm on Monday, June 20, 2016 and concludes at 11 am on Friday, June 24, 2016.
Who Can Attend
Students with an interest in Marine Sciences, ages 13-16, with a GPA of at least 3.0.
