The Sultana Education Foundation’s (SEF) Paddling Programs allow school students and small youth groups to safely captain their own canoe or kayak while exploring a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay near their school. SEF Paddling Programs focus on wetlands, shoreline, and shallow water ecology while making interdisciplinary connections with the history of the Chesapeake’s Native populations and the expeditions of Captain John Smith. During a typical program, students examine maps of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, conduct tests to monitor water quality, explore shoreline environments, identify wetland plants, and pull seine nets to sample marine life.
