Hands On Environmental Learning
It's not just a field trip! DDOE's watershed education programs bring together field studies and classroom activities in multiple disciplines. Students learn about the Anacostia, Potomac and Chesapeake Bay watersheds. Their experiences are integrated into the rest of their studies, and sustained throughout the school year.
