Legacy Institute for the Environment

For the seventh consecutive year, the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center (CBEC), will offer an exciting learning and volunteer opportunity to adults age 50+ who have a particular interest in environmental stewardship, education, conservation, restoration and research.  In Spring 2010, CBEC will host the Legacy Institute on the Environment – a program of instructional sessions, hands-on field experiences, and volunteer service.  Environmental experts from key organizations will guide and facilitate the learning experiences.  Among past cooperating organizations and agencies are the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Chesapeake Bay Trust, NOAA, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Environmental Protection Agency, and others.  This program will take place on Fridays beginning February 19, through April 16, 2010.  If you are interested in learning more about the Institute, please look for information on the CBEC website, www.BayRestoration.org under Volunteer Opportunities or contact Patty Campbell.  Ph: 410-604-1661, E-mail: pcamp@BayRestoration.org.
