Youth Education

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! Check out the 2018 flyer!

Because of limited space, there is an application process. Applications are due on March 30th.
