May 1, 2017 - Meeting, Lancaster Community Library at 3:15pm with Robin Blake, Teachers on the Bay

Come and be prepared to be amazed by our local students and their teacher as they demonstrate the work they have done this year and the benefits they received from our scholarship money for Teachers on the Bay.

Chesapeake Academy Teacher, Robin Blake, and Students will present Seacamp projects on  May 1 at Northern Neck Audubon Society program.

During the summer of 2016  NNAS awarded Chesapeake Academy Teacher, Robin Blake, a scholarship to attend  Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Teachers on the Bay program.  Her  lesson plan for Teachers On Bay  was based on "her dream" of helping Windmill Point Beach. Working with the Friends of the Rappahannock, the Master Gardeners, Lancaster County officials and her Chesapeake Academy students, she is pleased that this dream is coming to fruition.

Blake will talk about how during her "Teacher's on the Bay" experience,  she realized how much her students could do to help our local environment.  They  raise oysters, and are in the process of preserving their  Nature Trail which is a wetlands area, by removing invasive species, as well as working with the County to try to grow more sea grasses to stop erosion and help Windmill Point Beach.

Joining her  will be three Seacamp teams from Chesapeake Academy who will present their projects:

Philip Haynie and Abby Souders, both 8th graders, presenting "Algal Bloom Doom." Though unknown by many, nutrient water pollution has a very dangerous affect on marine ecosystems.
Adair Stanley and Eden Stander, both 7th graders,  presenting "Conservation Station."  Conservation awareness provides people with the role they should play to improve the environment.

Elizabeth Stanley and Jack Porter, both 7th graders, presenting "It's a Win Win.... Maybe."  Symbiotic relationships affect species in different ecosystems, changing the way the organisms live together.

NNAS meetings are held in the large meeting room on the second floor of Lancaster Community Library at 16 Town Centre Drive, in Kilmarnock. We begin with refreshments at 3:15 and start the program at 3:30.

All programs are free and open to the public.
