National Capital Region parks and schools all dwell within the Potomac River and Greater Chesapeake Bay Watershed. We are all connected by the land and water. Bridging the Watershed is an educational partnership between the National Park Service, the Alice Ferguson Foundation, and secondary schools to provide meaningful watershed learning experiences for students in NCR parks.
Park Rangers new to BTW must attend this informative, engaging, and fun training in order to lead BTW field studies.
