Join SEA Club
Kindergarten through 1st grade students enrolled in Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s SEA Club (Science Education Afternoons) will learn while having fun exploring the local marine environment. The club will meet from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on four consecutive Wednesdays, May 1st through the 23rd. Preregistration is required; deadline to register is Wednesday, April 25.
The Aquarium’s marine laboratory classroom will serve as a base station for hands-on ocean exploration. Under the guidance of CMA’s education staff, students will have an opportunity to use microscopes, binoculars, and other scientific tools during their expeditions around the Aquarium and different destinations within the Cabrillo Coastal Park. Activities may include treks to the adjacent Point Fermin tidepools, investigations of the sandy beach, and visits to the Salinas de San Pedro Saltmarsh where the children will observe animals in nature and learn about the marine habitats of Southern California. Students help plan the activities according to their interests. Our goal is for students to leave their SEA Club experience with a better understanding of and appreciation for their connection to the ocean.
The cost for four weekly sessions is $30 ($27 FRIENDS members) and includes a SEA Club T-shirt. Financial assistance is available. Pre-registration is required.
The Aquarium is located at 3720 Stephen M. White Drive, San Pedro and is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks with support from FRIENDS of Cabrillo Marine Aquarium.
