K–12 Field Trip Programs 2016-2017
INDIAN RIVER LAGOON EXPERIENCE
Our most popular program offers the students a chance to participate in land-based activities as well as taking a tour on our boat. Dolphin, manatee, birds and other marine life may be encountered as the naturalist describes the lagoon and its inhabitants. Land activities may include a plankton study, an invertebrate presentation, or many other options.
Participants will explore the lagoon up close while leisurely paddling in a kayak. The journey will be led by an experienced kayak naturalist who will guide the students through an ecological lesson on the importance the lagoon. This awe-inspiring trip will not be easily forgotten and will instill an appreciation of nature.
DISCOVERY ECO-ADVENTURE TOUR
What could be better than cruising the lagoon while learning about the wildlife that inhabits the area? Perhaps dolphins will be playing or birds will be diving to capture prey. A naturalist will be along to stimulate students’ curiosities about the most biologically diverse estuary in North America. Students will also learn about the salinity and turbidity of the water.
A ride on the Discovery boat takes participants to an island for an extreme exploration experience. Measure the salinity and turbidity of the water as you travel to an island to discover marine life and plants in their natural habitats. Explorers will use seine nets and dip nets to uncover the animals and identify animal signs in the sand.
