RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is accepting applications for its Richmond-area adult education course.

The once-a-week evening classes run from June 6 through Aug. 1. They'll focus on water quality and stewardship. The sessions will be taught by experts from the foundation and other regional institutions and groups.

Classes will meet Thursday evenings at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Henrico County. Two field trips are included in the course, along with a discussion of plans in Virginia aimed at restoring streams, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay.

After the course ends, participants will be asked to perform a minimum of 40 hours of bay-related volunteer service.

Applications are due by May 31. The courses cost $30 per person and $50 for couples.
