DAY OF DISCOVERY: MARINE MAMMAL CARE CENTER
The Office of Outdoor and Environmental Education and the Marine Mammal Care Center are pleased to announce a collaboration to bring a new Day of Discovery field study to LAUSD schools.
Students participating in the Bioaccumulation Field Study Program will gain an understanding of the marine food chain and the organisms that inhabit it. Additionally, they will learn how toxins can accumulate in the food chain and affect predators like seals and sea lions. Students will conduct research on plankton and create their own for a "plankton race." They will also participate in a seal and sea lion encounter and learn about their care and treatment.
We are currently accepting reservations for our pilot program, which will begin later this month. We'd love for your school to participate. This trip is designed for students in fourth through eighth grades.
