Three people in blue uniforms, stand holding whale bones and baleen behind a roll-away cart, while a third person stands facing them off to the side looking through binoculars. Behind them is an ocean lookout with a stone wall and glass screens.

It is surprising to many that the National Park Service conducts science and monitoring efforts to learn more about the park and its diverse, natural resources. Science Explorer’s Club volunteers introduce park visitors to these projects through simulated, hands-on activities! By teaching visitors of all backgrounds how to collect data and make scientific observations, they encourage environmental stewardship of the land’s natural resources. Activity topics include tidepool monitoring, bird anatomy, geology, and more!
