Sea Turtle Journey- Students can learn the natural history and the perils facing sea turtles through story time with a park ranger, followed by an activity illustrating the important role students play in sea turtle conservation. Programs conducted April - May on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. Grades: 3rd-5th

Microscopic Sea Monsters: Plankton Lab - Have you ever wondered what is in a drop of sea water? A lot! Rangers will set up a microscope lab in your classroom. Students will explore a water sample from Biscayne National Park. The microscopes will reveal a microscopic world to the students. Grades: 4th-12th

Inside the Invader: Lionfish Lab - Lionfish are an Indo-Pacific fish invading Biscayne National Park. Interns from the University of Miami collect these specimens to conserve the Biscayne National Park's rich diversity. The removal of the lionfish provides a dissection opportunity for local students.
