ID GUIDES + SURVEYS
"Defining moments are meaningful experiences that stand out in our memories. They shape our lives.
But we don't have to wait for them to happen. We can be the authors of them."
-Chip Heath, Dan Heath, The Power of Moments
We hope these guides encourage every student (and every person!) to get outside and create their defining moment.
When that moment happens, it will bring empowerment, a big smile, and a life long connection to the natural world. It will forever enrich your moments outdoors by being able to identify the wildlife around you. When we name something, we are then able to communicate about it in deeper ways, while also providing an invitation to care and ultimately, protect it.
Another mission of ours is to enhance every student's curiosity, encourage them to always ask questions, and empower them as citizen scientists. Our activities show students how scientists monitor marine ecosystem health and bring them into the data collection.
We believe the desire to save our natural world begins with first experiencing the creatures that rely on it, and we couldn't be more excited to get you out there!
