Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of two blogs maintained by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), both crawled on June 1, 2012.

The "SERC Home School" blog is for students enrolled in SERC's home school classes and their parents. It includes updated materials for classes as well as updates and other information about the classes. The first post was in March 2011.

The "Estuary Chesapeake" blog is an exchange between teachers, parents, SERC staff, and students related to field trips for the Estuary Chesapeake program. The program allows fourth through sixth grade students to study estuarine ecology on the Rhode River and connect environmental issues of the watershed to human impacts. Although technically a blog, it is organized more like a traditional website than a blog.

Materials are in electronic format.
