8th Grade Marine Biology Trip to the Channel Islands

The 8th grade students recently attended their Marine Biology Trip to the Northern Channel Islands.   Students had an opportunity to synthesize what was covered in class with this real world experience.  Snorkeling in search of mollusks, echinoderms, marine mammals and fish; kayaking to experience the impact of wind and currents on the water; exploring sea caves and hiking to witness the unique island environment were among the activities.   Students received numerous compliments about their behavior and social skills along the way; from the bus drivers, captains & crew and the National Parks Department naturalists who accompanied us.  Congratulations to all of the students and chaperones for working together to make this a very memorable trip!
