We are so passionate about introducing students to the incredible animals that depend on the classroom right outside our doorstep. Our shore-based programs are designed to teach students about the incredible marine life that depends on a healthy Salish Sea. Our hope is that our curriculum will create a forever ocean advocate who develops a life-long love and appreciation for the marine environment.
We also hope to empower students of all ages as emerging marine naturalists and provide important time to enjoy free play during their exploration outdoors.
