Coastal Classroom Summer Institute Application

  • Our five-week program offers lessons to middle school students during the summer in our city’s waterways. Science-based activities coupled with recreational opportunities such as rowing, fishing, seining and bird watching allow students to experience our waterways as their own backyards and to learn how to protect them. Students gather what they have learned and reflect their cumulative knowledge and hands-on experiences through fully integrated science projects.
