Programming at Masonville Cove
 
 
Living Classrooms Foundation is working with the Port of Baltimore, the Brooklyn and Curtis Bay Coalition, and the National Aquarium in Baltimore to create and manage the Masonville Cove Environmental Education Center, located on Masonville Cove on the Patapsco River's Middle Branch. This site acts as a gateway to connect underserved individuals and communities to the outdoors and the Chesapeake Bay through environmental education, stewardship activities, and job training programs. Living Classrooms is implementing coordinated school and community outreach programs for the Brooklyn, Curtis Bay, and Cherry Hill communities. This initiative is based on Living Classrooms' successful Meaningful Watershed Environmental Education program, which works with urban youth to understand and prevent the environmental effects of pollution and runoff in their own backyards.
Through the project, students learn about the water cycle, explore the concept of watersheds, learn about their own subwatershed, and employ mapping skills as they locate the storm drains on their school property and in their neighborhoods. Students are also involved in monitoring, protection, and restoration activities such as trash pick-up and recycling. They create and install rain barrels, stencil storm drains, and design and install native garden habitats. As students living near the Middle Branch learn about and help to improve their own neighborhoods, they will become the community's future leaders.
