Guardians Jr. - Homeschool Edition is designed to introduce students to the ocean and local marine life in the Salish Sea.


It is the perfect program to spark interest in marine ecosystems and understand how it is all connected, from water quality to whales. 

Please bring your own lunch and snack.

Highlights include:

  • Experience incredible marine life 

  • Marine species identification 

  • Water and land-based research 

  • Environmental service hours 

  • Small group learning 

  • Stress-reduction activities

  • Take-home action plans

  • On-going learning community

  • Curiosity inspiration through inquiry based learning

  • Individual strength recognition
  • STEAM (A for art!) ​​

Each day's lesson will focus on the specific topic listed, however we never can predict what marine life each day will bring! The ultimate goal is to experience the animals' ecosystem and understand how students can become leaders in marine conservation - seeing whales (or any wildlife!) is never guaranteed.
