John Smith Trail Expeditions

Sultana Projects’ John Smith Trail Expeditions program is a great way to get your students out onto the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The program uses a traveling fleet of canoes that is brought to a waterway near your school, where your students then embark on a 3 to 5 hour field exploration. Activities include paddling, water quality sampling, shoreline and marsh exploration, and visiting sites of importance to local Native American communities.
