Program Descriptions

Be the Solution to Ocean Pollution

Every year, approximately eight to twelve million metric tons of plastic are discarded into our global ocean. Along with plastic debris, marine life faces other forms of pollution including air, sound, and other anthropogenic causes. Students will explore all forms of pollution that threaten our world ocean and discuss solutions that we can implement at home and in our daily lives.

Rocky Shore Tide Pools: Animals and Adaptations

Your naturalist will take you on a virtual tide pool investigation using magnified images and underwater video footage to help you learn more about the unique attributes of the rocky intertidal ecosystem. Students will explore biodiversity, patterns and zonation, and the special adaptations that help animals and algae thrive in this challenging habitat. This program moves beyond an introduction to engage students in a closer examination of intertidal species and what it takes to survive in a wild and dynamic ecosystem.
