Biscayne National Park is an incredible classroom and laboratory for students of all ages.

Biscayne National Park's Education Program covers a wide variety of subject matter and topics appropriate for most primary and secondary grades, as well as for college, and life long learners too. Our goals for all our education endeavors are:

  • to provide real world learning opportunities that provide students with a better understanding of natural and cultural histories
  • improve scientific literacy
  • increase appreciation for conservation and stewardship. 
All our programs are free and we are often able to assist with transportation costs for Title 1 schools. The majority of our programs are held at or launched from the Dante Fascell Visitor Center at Convoy Point in Homestead, FL.

Our current focus and priority is on 4th grade programming and many of our activities are designed to align with 4th grade standards. Our most popular program is "Biscayne Explorer", a 4 hour, hands-on program that introduces students to marine sciences through seine net tows, microscopy, nature journaling, and visitor center exploration.
