Chesapeake Bay Watershed Education
Project WET in the Chesapeake Bay Workshops
Teachers in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed of NY have an opportunity to receive training and materials to help teach about our connection to this extraordinary river system. This watershed is 64,000 square miles and lies within six states. In New York, the Chemung and Susquehanna Drainage Basins make up the northern-most part of this system.
