CBF is extremely lucky to have numerous groups
of college and university students participate in
alternative spring breaks—some even all the way
from Michigan. During their time with CBF, students
help plant trees along streams, prepare oyster shells
for restoration, and tackle other Bay-saving projects.
This year marked the 10th year University of
Maryland students participated in CBF’s alternative
spring break program. Pictured here are (left to

Wade Williams, Emily Samuels, Zhelin Gua, Victor
Chambliss, Katie Flach, Alice Xie, Omid Barr,
Cameron Smith, Esha Satam, Lauren McNearney,
Nicku Keshavarz, Kiara Sabino-Bailey, and Nick Cha.
