Sarbanes told ThinkProgress that his childhood summers spent crabbing, fishing and exploring the Chesapeake Bay made reintroducing the NCLI act personal for him.

“I grew up feeling like the Bay and the environment were something that were really part of who I was, of who I am, and so the idea of being able to connect young people to the outdoors…to build environmental education into instructional opportunities – was something irresistible to me,” he said.
