Chesapeake Heritage Initiative Program

Chesapeake Heritage Initiative blends the science and the history of the Bay. Aboard historic Chesapeake Bay work boats on the Chester River, students learn in the heart of Maryland's Upper Eastern Shore, where time and tradition have all but stood still. Students will eat, sleep, and live on board Echo Hill Outdoor School's two historic bay craft, the buy-boat Annie D. (1957) and the skipjack Elsworth (1901). Activities include fishing, setting sails, navigating with map and compass, interviewing people on the River, and learning about regional lifestyles and folklore. Plan Field Trip
