Each year, Beach Watchers offer classroom and field trip support during the spring months to approximately 30 classes so students can learn about intertidal life, tides, watersheds and more! Unfortunately, we do not have the funding this year to run our Bringing the Beach to the Classroom youth education program.
For Teachers and Educators
Learn about our Puget Sound Youth Education Program
Bring Your Class to the Puget Sound!
- Increase Puget Sound literacy and appreciation in elementary school children including taking them on field trips to the beach.
- We invite classrooms around Snohomish county out to one of our beaches at low tide and hold a hands on field trip. A week before the field trip we visit the classroom to talk set-up the field trip and talk about beach etiquette.
- Students rotate through learning stations at the Snohomish County beaches, Mukilteo Lighthouse Park and Kayak Point, as WSU Beach Watchers introduce beach exploration for up to two hours. Selected dates are available in May and June based on low tide schedules.
Check back on this page in January of 2024 for selected dates and how to apply.
