Watershed Science Overnight
Grades 4-5

Science Field Trip 17 hours

In this overnight program, students embark on an in-depth exploration of the science of watersheds. Students learn scientific techniques as they perform a fish dissection, conduct water chemistry tests, work on a biological assessment, and examine global water distribution. Student research teams conduct a soil study within the Dana Point Harbor to assess current conditions. In the morning, students’ land-based examinations are complemented by research activities offshore aboard the R/V Sea Explorer.
