Watershed Overnight

Overview

4th - 5th
Grades
17 hours
Duration
In this overnight program, students embark on an in-depth exploration of the science of watersheds. Students learn scientific techniques as they perform a fish dissection, conduct water chemistry tests, and work on a biological assessment. Student research teams conduct a soil study within the Dana Point Harbor to assess current conditions. In the morning, students’ land-based examinations are complemented by research activities offshore aboard the R/V Sea Explorer. Students will test the offshore nutrient levels, complete a bioassessment of the seafloor habitat, and examine the local plankton population.
