Description:

Classes cover a range of topics that help children explore and understand our local
ecosystems. The children will use tools like microscopes, viewing scopes, ID books and other aids to help them learn and explore their environment. Classes feature games, songs, stories, props, specimens and cool experiments. Most of all, we have lots and lots of fun! Some sample topics and activities include:
  • Testing ocean acidity level and the effects on hard-shelled animals.
  • Experiment: Can crabs smell?
  • Stewardship opportunities
