Our vision is a Chesapeake Bay and watershed that is healthy and thriving; one in which natural systems and human communities are in balance. Our interdisciplinary academic programs promote the integration of environmental issues, social values, and good old river mud.
Lecture series, workshops, films and seminars provide new perspectives and professional development opportunities for the campus and the larger community. Competitively awarded student fellowships put students to work on real-world problems, allowing them to build a resume and establish connections in the professional world.
With the landmark Chesapeake Semester, the Center for Environment & Society invites students to undertake unique interdisciplinary studies with the Chesapeake Bay at their core.

Lots of things took place at the Chester River Field Research Station in 2014.
David Rothenberg is a musician, philosopher and author who often makes music with his favorite non-human species. He comes to Washington College March 26 for a concert and talk.
The Center for Environment and Society (CES) offers 2-3 summer internships each year with the Chester River Field Research Station at Chino Farms.
Internship positions are a great way for students who are interested in wildlife biology or related careers to gain valuable hands-on field experience.
