Marine Education Field Trips

IN THE FIELD!

These programs are hosted at Centerport Beach.  We can also host these programs at a beach near you!  Programs are offered September through May and are weather permitting.

Please wear water shoes and dress for the weather.

Beach Clean-up: Grades 2-12 (2 hours)
Help keep our seas free of debris! What is marine debris and how can it have serious impacts on both marine wildlife and humans? How does our trash make it to the ocean and how long will it stay there? We answer these important questions and discuss how we can make a difference. Students participate in a beach clean-up using provided materials for safe trash pick-up. This activity will be followed by an evaluation of what the students have discovered and hands-on time with examples of live local marine animals that are affected by pollution.

$20 per student, minimum fee: $320 for 2 hours. Maximum 50 students.


Beach Life Talk & Tour: PreK-12 (2 hours)
Let's explore the beach! This program includes hands-on introduction to local marine life and concludes with fishing time as we help your students seine the bay and learn about the animals we find. We will end our time with beach combing for treasures on a scavenger hunt. Seasonal, weather permitting; please wear water shoes and dress for the weather.

$20 per child, minimum fee: $320 for 2 hours. Maximum 50 students.
