Seaside Education Adventure

Seaside Sustainability programs are built on a foundation that emphasizes the importance of sustainability in harboring an earth in which future generations will be able to thrive.

Seaside Sustainability programs are built on a foundation that emphasizes the importance of sustainability in harboring an earth in which future generations will be able to thrive.  Seaside Education Adventure (SEA) was the first program to grow out of this idea, and pairs marine ecology ideas with hands-on nature learning. This combination introduces local youth to the short and long term effects of a variety of ocean threats.  These boat-based trips take students out onto the water to learn about oceanography, water sustainability, and ecosystem balance.
