OUTSIDE THE BOX:
One of the best deals in outdoor education in the DC area is Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary, which is out Rt. 4 in Anne Arundel County, MD, near the border with Calvert County. Jug Bay is now accepting spring field trip bookings. The bay itself is a tidal wetland on the Patuxent River, a few miles from where the Patuxent empties into the Chesapeake Bay, and the sanctuary offers a variety of top-notch naturalist-led student programs that blend outdoor exploration with classroom time for only $3 per student. In addition to the school-day programs, the sanctuary also runs a few summer camps and will soon start taking reservations for its popular wetland ecology by canoe program for students and adults. www.jugbay.org/education
