Journey students from Central Academy and Read Mountain were selected to participate in the Fox Island trip to the Chesapeake Bay June 28-June 30, 2014. With support funding from the Botetourt Education Foundation, 13 students and 2 chaperones spent 3 days (with no technology) learning about the bay ecosystem and the life of the watermen who depend on the bay for their livelihood.  This educational experience teaches students the value of the Chesapeake Bay and the importance of our watershed in protecting the bay.
