Project Discovery is geared towards high school students who want to study marine biology in the field. On Monday they use scientific equipment to sample fish, invertebrates, plankton & water in the Bay aboard our research vessel. Tuesday is spent canoeing through the local slough to survey the ecology of the area and test water quality. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are spent on field trips to the coast with tidepooling, kayaking, beach transects, and water quality testing included.


  • 2020 Project Discovery will be visiting the same location as in 2019. If your camper joined for Project Discovery in 2019 then they will experience a repeat of activities and locations.

  • No overnight for 2020 Project Discovery​
