About Farm Field Days
Fourth grade students rotate through seven barns, with each barn highlighting an aspect of life on the farm using hands-on lessons. These demonstrations are geared to meet Virginia SOL measures. Farm Field Days is a fun and engaging hands-on approach to teaching students about the agricultural world around them, and opening their eyes to the importance of protecting our natural resources.

Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE)

The 2014 Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement, signed by all governors of states in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed requires that students participate in Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) at least once during each level of instruction (elementary, middle, and high school).


This Virginia Standards of Learning based program is for students to promote stewardship in the context of one's neighborhood and community. Carefully selected experiences, driven by academic learning standards engendering discovery and wonder, and nurturing a sense of community will further connect students with the watershed and help reinforce an ethic of responsible citizenship.
