The Sultana Education Foundation’s paddling programs are a great way for students to explore the shallow creeks, streams, and rivers that flow to the nation’s largest estuary. During a typical school program, students paddle scenic, undeveloped portions of one of the Bay’s tidal tributaries while learning about the flora and fauna that make the estuary so unique. Canoe and kayak programs take place on the National Park Service’s Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail and were established with the support of the National Park Service’s Chesapeake Bay Gateways office.
