Science Programs

IMPORTANT: Please Read

Reservations are now open for in-person and virtual programming.

We will reassess the safety of in-person programming on a month-by-month basis. In-person programming is subject to cancelation at any time if conditions are deemed unsafe.

All participants of in-person programming must wear a mask at all times when with a park ranger regardless of vaccination status.

Scheduling is done on a first-come first-served basis.

Onsite science programs are available Monday - Friday, with two program time slots per day: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM and 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM (Except intertidal programs based on tide times). Conservation & Comics is 1.5 hours

Each hour-long program can accommodate 35 students. If you have more than 35 students, you will need to reserve BOTH time slots for a day. If you have more than 70 students, you will need to request multiple days. For each group of 35 students you will need to fill out a separate reservation form.

Virtual Program Offerings:

Climate Kids: Ocean Acidification (5 - 12)

Conservation & Comics (K – 12)

Plant Adaptations (K – 12)

Science Sampler (5 – 12)

Our unique location on the Point Loma peninsula allows for student exploration into many unique and diverse habitats.
