About this Event

Our Outdoor Explorers for All Club is taking a trip to the Channel Islands!

Saturday, May 1, 2021

3 PM ET / 12 PM PT

Join Blue Star Families and staff from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for a virtual outdoor adventure from Ventura Harbor in California across the Santa Barbara Channel in the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, to Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands.

The channel crossing will be full of marine life experiences, such as humpback whales breaching, common dolphins surfing the wake of the Island Packers vessel, and sea lions darting in and out of kelp forests. You’ll also have a chance to see the largest animal to have ever existed on planet Earth—the elusive blue whale.

As you approach the islands, you’ll learn more about this special marine protected area located in a major upwelling zone where nutrient-rich waters rise from the deep sea to the surface, and feed over 28 species of whales and dolphins. Once on land, you’ll take a quick hike, then cool off while snorkeling in the lush kelp forests and kayaking in sea caves surrounding the island. Following your exhilarating adventure to the Channel Islands, you'll have an opportunity to ask questions about this special national treasure. This is an adventure you don't want to miss!

A GoToWebinar link for NOAA will be in your confirmation email after this registration is complete . Without registering on GoToWebinar, you won't be able to view this field trip.

Have questions? Email Vicky Perkins, vperkins@bluestarfam.org. We look forward to "seeing" you soon!
