NatureBridge educators will lead two experiences on three different dates throughout the summer at Seabrook.
NatureBridge and Seabrook have teamed up to run a new collaboration in Washington’s Beach Town this summer. NatureBridge is an environmental learning program that connects children and teens with the outdoors. There will be three dates where educators are on-site at Seabrook to lead two experiences.
The program dates are July 17, August 4 and August 21. There is a morning session which is geared towards children entering grades four through six, and an afternoon session for families of all ages. Both sessions will last approximately two hours. The morning session is $25 per child, and the afternoon session is $50 per family.
The environmental program will cover three topics on the separate dates that explore Seabrook’s rich environment. July 17 will feature “What can live here?” and explore the forest to ocean habitat. August 4’s topic is “Marine Debris and Ocean Acidification” answering what marine debris is, where it comes from, and how it affects the ocean’s most pervasive problems. It will also cover the excess of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere and the effects on the ocean’s chemistry and animals. The last topic on August 21 is “Exploratory Investigation” where students will be closely observing an organism or phenomenon, learning about the ecosystem and conducting a short investigation.
NatureBridge provides hands-on environmental science programs for children and teens. Their multi-day programs take place outdoors in the magnificence of nature’s classroom, where students are immersed in the wonder and science of our national parks in multiple locations, including Olympic National Park. Founded as Yosemite Institute in 1971, today NatureBridge welcomes more than 700 schools and 30,000 students and teachers each year to their six campuses. After more than 40 years of teaching and inspiring students, NatureBridge has provided life-changing experiences for more than 1 million participants and is a national leader in the field of environmental education.
