Each day includes fun boat-based and local island-based educational adventures throughout the San Juan Islands.
Student participants experience a vast amount of environmental richness as they look at all levels of ecosystem health, from water quality to whales!
Each day includes a different research project requiring active student participation for data collection to help monitor ecosystem health.
This is great exposure to marine scientific inquiry, marine research equipment, survey methodologies, long term data sets, quantitative analysis, field research, and more.
We are so proud to also include discussions and suggestions for personal action steps each student can take to continue improving ecosystem health every day. This includes simple at-home steps or learning about the importance of letter writing to elected officials.
