Last year, Matt Green, a teacher from Farquhar Middle School, came to talk to us about a project he does every year where he takes a group of kids from Farquhar on a trip to the Chesapeake Bay to learn about the ecology of the bay and how their actions have environmental consequences.  He asked us to make a donation to the project that would allow some kids who are less financially well off to attend the trip, which we did.

At our meeting in September, Matt talked to us about how that trip went, showed us pictures, and explained a little about what the kids learned.  He said that this particular trip reinvigorated his interest in continuing the project, and presented the Sandy Spring Lions Club with a beautiful canvas print of the kids on the trip.
