Salish Sea Science Program

‚ÄčSalish Sea Science.JPG.png
This April 26th-28th, Ocean Wise will be hosting a youth leadership retreat entitled ‚ÄúSalish Sea Science Program‚ÄĚ. Participating youth will learn about the seven ocean literacy principles, the history of the area and traditional knowledge through outdoor activities. Students will then work in teams to develop an online learning resource to be uploaded to Ocean Wise‚Äôs online learning environment. The resources will be a reflection of their experience at the Salish Sea Science Program, and will provide teachers with a tool to guide their class through the fundamentals of ocean literacy. To fully engage youth in ocean leadership, participants will challenge themselves in a ropes course, explore the coast in kayaks (weather permitting) and discover inter-tidal creatures while tide pooling. 
We are looking for 30 students in grades 10-12 that might be interested in joining this program, running April 26th to 28th, 2019. I have attached an information flyer and instructions on how to apply. Applications are due March 15th at 12:00pm. All successful applicants will be notified by March 29th. More information is available at education.org/youth.

If you have any questions, please contact me at hailey.renaud@ocean.org or 604-659-3493.
