Education, including hands-on conservation training, is a foundation of Cacapon Institutes’s work. When we opened the “eSchool” in 2003, CI joined the pioneers of internet-based education.
Students from across the Chesapeake Bay region are investigating benthic macroinvertebrates, water chemistry, and how choices we make, and actions we take, impact rivers. Schools across the U.S. use our free online resources and, since lessons on the importance of clean water are universal, we have assisted classrooms as far away as Thailand. The eSchool won 1st Place in Adobe’s 2009 National “Show Your Impact” campaign.
