School Programs

Educational Programs
Educational programs are available for Pre-K through college classes Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. We offer field-oriented, experiential, small group activities.

School programs begin with a brief introduction on salt marsh habitat followed by a one, two or three hour hike. For longer programs, students have a lunch break and then do on-site, science activities. We can work with you to design a program that fits your classroom curriculum. For pricing, available dates, and to schedule a program, please call us at 510-670-7270 or fill out this form.
