WILD Weekends

Overview

WILD Weekends
We Inspire Learning through Discovery

WILD (We Inspire Learning through Discovery) Weekends at the Ocean Institute highlight take-home science activities for families.

Each WILD weekend will focus on a different science topic ranging from marine pollution to terrestrial ecology. At the end, families will have the tools to keep the discovery going at home.

Join us for one of the WILD Weekends below.

Creative Composting
WILD Weekend Series

Have you wanted to compost but aren’t sure how to start? Come to this WILD Weekend to start simple composting at your own home. Composting turns waste into soil enhancers, saves space in landfills, and helps reduce pollution runoff from reaching the ocean. You will learn the basics of composting at home and create simple bins to take home to put your composting knowledge into practice. We will also be designing a special composting inspired dessert that you will create and eat while you learn!
