Education activities review: April15-19

April 20, 2013

Public events

Today Jess and Carmen teamed up with Beth Trowbridge and a volunteer from the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies to lead a KBEEA-sponsored event for families with young children – Let’s G.O.! (Get Outside) Family Wetland Exploration in Beluga Slough. 15 kids and 8 adults joined us for this fun, muddy outing. The kids were especially interested in birdwatching, worm hunting, and bug collecting. They enjoyed a Marsh Safari scavenger hunt in the thawing marsh, as well. This was a Week of the Young Child event. Here are a few photos from this morning’s outing:

Community monitoring

Catie led a HAB (harmful algal bloom) training for community monitors today. The group spent part of the day on the Homer Spit collecting samples and the remainder of the day in the lab classroom learning how to analyze the samples they will be collecting.

K-12 Education

This week we wrapped up our April Discovery Lab programming, teaching Our Landscape Over Time labs for 122 third grade, sixth grade, and high school students from the Homer area.
