Students of all ages can continue the Urban Adventure Squad learning at home, in the classroom, or while traveling. You'll find resources here, and you can also check out our website resource area focusing on D.C.'s Hidden Waterways, a yearlong project in partnership wit Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School that was funded by the D.C. Department of Energy and Environment.
On the right side of this page, you'll find a packet of activities that we created as part of a workshop we offered at D.C. Bilingual (DCB) Public Charter School. We are grateful to DCB teacher Cecilia Winter for translating the packet into Spanish.
If you find the activities useful and would like to volunteer to translate the packet into another language, we'd love to hear from you!

Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail Stewards Program
Urban Adventure Squad students in Summer 2019 Surfin' the Waves week were the second cohort of Squad members to become Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail Stewards.
The Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail stewards program is a partnership between Living Classrooms and National Park Service. This program brings awareness to the land and water trails highlighting War of 1812 history in the Chesapeake Bay region. If you've been to Fort McHenry in Baltimore, or the Octagon House, Tudor Place, or Francis Scott Key Memorial Park in Washington, then you've been to a stop along the trail!
To read more about our participation in this program and our shipboard experience aboard the historic Mildred Belle (and check out a fun slideshow of pictures), head to our Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail Stewards page!
Thank you to Living Classrooms and National Park Service for providing this incredible hands-on learning opportunity!
