Overview

Environmental awareness in our every day lives

Join us for year of brand new programming, custom-designed just for you! Learn about marine wildlife in a whole new way while experiencing fun hands-on activities, sharing stories with the experts, and receiving an insider's look at what happens behind-the-scenes. These experiences create endless opportunity for student self-discovery and those special ‘a-ha’ moments that spark a life long curiosity and respect for our oceans.


Volunteers are integral in this process as they work with the coordinator to develop their skills in program planning with your specific students in mind.
