What an AMAZING trip! My students were glued to their seats as Teacher Travis walked around, showed us amazing animals, and answered all our questions. Thank you!
The Secrets of the California Coast
Humans have a duty to protect this planet for future generations. In this visually stunning trip, your students venture live to a special location on the coast of California, Abalone Cove, filled with tide pools and amazing animals. Conservation, ecology and geology are at the heart of this trip. Students will see up close animals like sea anemones, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, crabs, and thousands of different mollusks. Despite the name, there are no longer abalone in Abalone Cove. We dive into humans impact on nature and what we can do to keep our precious nature spaces safe and healthy.
