Regular price

This program provides an introductory look at the seasonality of different local marine plants and animals, with hands-on exploration opportunities and demonstrations. Topics include requirements for survival and growth, reproductive strategies, growth patterns, and migration. Students will also explore the seasonality of linkages in the marine food web (e.g. herring, salmon, birds, bears, sea lions/seals, humans). 

For in-class delivery, we will supply all materials, and engage students in a bonus animal guessing game.

Duration: 60 minutes
