CCS students plan rockfish fishing trip

Weekend adventure trips are an important and favorite component of the Christchurch Great Journeys Curriculum. The trips are designed by CCS Director of Place-Based Education Dave Cola to supplement Great Journeys classwork across the academic departments.
The adventures give students an opportunity to continue exploration of “our place”—the local communities and the Chesapeake Bay watershed—from the headwaters to the basin, in their free time.
This weekend, Christchurch students will open the first day of rockfish season with sunrise fishing in a Chesapeake Bay tidal gut. They hope to filet and cook their catch for breakfast. After a day of exploration and fishing, the group will eat at South Wind Pizza in Mathews.
