Salish Sea Science Program 2019: Apply Today!

Posted by haileyrenaud on February 20th, 2019

Are you a passionate youth committed to the conservation of aquatic life? If so, we have an opportunity for you to join us on Hornby Island at the Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre for the 3-day/2-night Salish Sea Science Program!

Participating youth (30) will learn about the seven ocean literacy principles, the history of the area and traditional knowledge through outdoor activities. Students will then work in teams to develop an online learning resource to be uploaded to Ocean Wise’s online learning environment. The resources will be a reflection of their experience at the Salish Sea program, and will provide teachers with a tool to guide their class through the fundamentals of ocean literacy. To fully engage youth in ocean leadership, participants will challenge themselves in a ropes course, explore the coast in kayaks (weather permitting) and discover intertidal creatures while tide pooling.
