Biscayne Expedition - A resource based camping program that instills an understanding and appreciation for the natural world. Elliott Key is the site of the lessons where students are immersed in an outdoor learning environment that cannot be duplicated in the indoor classroom. A park ranger leads programs and activities that are designed to mimic the actual procedures performed by park scientists. Students are encouraged to form their own opinions and conclusions about environmental concerns. Register for the program here.
