Sea Turtle Journey
Students can learn the natural history and the perils facing sea turtles through story time with a National Park Ranger, followed by an activity illustrating the important role students play in sea turtle conservation.
Coral Reef Connection
We will bring the reef to you! A ranger will present a hands-on discovery of coral, why it is important and what students can do to keep reefs in Biscayne and around the world healthy.
What DO You Do?
Your students will be introduced to National Parks and the four ecosystems of Biscayne National Park while learning about careers as a National Park Ranger. This program is designed to be portable and can be presented in a classroom or library setting.
We also offer a variety of PowerPoint lecture-style presentations. "Ancient Biscayne" explores the geological formation and archeological history of the park, while "Faces of Biscayne's Past" presents the park's rich and varying cultural history. "Lionfish Invasion" presents the very current threat of lionfish to our local oceans and what we can do to help.
If none of these programs fit the bill, The Education Program can work with your class' individual curriculum needs when resources allow, don't hesitate to ask for special program!
