All workshops are content oriented and are designed for the middle and high school science teacher. Recharge your batteries and get excited about using marine science in YOUR curriculum!

This program focuses on the basics of the marine ecology of the Upper Keys. Introductory discussions provide background on concepts and species that will be encountered, following by field trips to the seagrass, mangrove, and coral reef communities. Additional field trips to other marine communities and a brief look at restoration efforts on the coral reef are included. Participants should be comfortable in the water, but need not be experienced swimmers or snorkelers.Teachers receive a link to a google drive folder with background information on all field trip topics.
