Brock Experience

A research guide to aid students and faculty participating in Brock Experience courses.

Chesapeake Bay Stewardship

Building on a slate of programs and research projects already in place at Longwood’s Hull Springs Farm in Westmoreland County, the Chesapeake Bay experience offers students a unique perspective into the complex issues surrounding North America’s largest estuary system. At once a source of income for oystermen and fishermen, a rich historical landscape, and a polluted natural resource in need of cleanup, the Bay is the source of ongoing debate from a number of disciplines, including science, economics, public policy, and sociology. Students will use the Bay issues investigated as models for understanding how to critically evaluate and formulate solutions to contentious public issues in their local communities.
