Virtual Field Trip—No Permission Slip Needed

155674 This weekend, 12 Pennsylvania high school students are setting off on the ultimate field trip. They’re going to spend the next 30 days canoeing 444 miles down the Susquehanna River from Cooperstown, New York, to Annapolis, Maryland.

It’s all part of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Expedition Susquehanna: Connecting Communities to Creeks. During the journey, the students will learn about water quality concerns (the Susquehanna has been designated one of the top ten endangered rivers in the U.S.) and visit with local watershed groups and environmental activists.

Learn more about the expedition and follow along through online dispatches. Who knows—maybe you’ll be inspired to explore your local creek.

  1. Ham Radio is a virtual travel to anywhere in the world. With nothing more than a license, and a radio; one can explore anywhere in the world. All of this from the comfort, and safety of home. In one afternoon, you can talk to several coutries, and learn something new. Ask about how they live, and the weather over there. The possibilities have no end.
