Seabrook and NatureBridge Collaborate on Environmental Workshop
July 16, 2018 - 2:01pm
SEABROOK, Wash. – (July 16, 2018)
 
NatureBridge and Seabrook have teamed up to run a new collaboration in Washington’s Beach Town this summer. NatureBridge is an environmental learning program that connects children and teens with the outdoors. There will be three dates where educators are on-site at Seabrook to lead two experiences.
 
The program dates are July 17, August 4 and August 21. There is a morning session which is geared towards children entering grades four through six, and an afternoon session for families of all ages. Both sessions will last approximately two hours. The morning session is $25 per child, and the afternoon session is $50 per family.
 
The environmental program will cover three topics on the separate dates that explore Seabrook’s rich environment. July 17 will feature “What can live here?” and explore the forest to ocean habitat. August 4’s topic is “Marine Debris and Ocean Acidification” answering what marine debris is, where it comes from, and how it affects the ocean’s most pervasive problems. It will also cover the excess of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere and the effects on the ocean’s chemistry and animals. The last topic on August 21 is “Exploratory Investigation” where students will be closely observing an organism or phenomenon, learning about the ecosystem and conducting a short investigation.
