Healthy Oceans, Healthy You: Field Session – Sandy Intertidal
(by invitation only)
The “Healthy Oceans, Healthy You” field session is a six-hour, in-person follow-up to last year’s virtual Ocean Science Workshop, co-facilitated with the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. We will explore some of the benefits outlined in the Sanctuary’s new ELA performance task called “Ocean Benefits.” In this workshop you will perform an investigation of intertidal invertebrates, learn from community partners, spend some time reflecting on and recording your observations of the beach environment, and participating in a short stewardship experience.
This workshop is for third through sixth grade public school teachers. You are welcome to join us even if you missed last year’s workshop.
We will be conducting the entire workshop outdoors* but participants will be required to follow the CDC guidelines for group events: wearing a face mask that covers nose and mouth and maintaining a six-foot distance from other participants.
Participants who attend the full session will receive:
- 6 WA State Approved STEM Clock Hours
- A tool kit from the OCNMS
- A $100 participation stipend
*Please note: The field session will take place on the coast of Grays Harbor County. The exact address of the field session site will be provided in an email prior to the workshop.
