ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says it is seeking volunteers to teach children about the Chesapeake Bay and other state waterways.

The volunteers will be part of the Teaching Environmental Awareness in Maryland program. More than 1,200 classroom presentations have been given since the program was started in 1998. Students are told about the bay’s six-state watershed, oysters, oyster reefs, horseshoe crabs and Chesapeake watermen.

Volunteers are sought in all counties and teaching experience is not needed. Those interested are asked to attend three training workshops in February and March in Annapolis and Rockville.
