Seashore Discovery

Students will be introduced to the seashore habitat and what animals live there. On the field trip, with nets, buckets and curious minds, students explore the waters of Sengekontacket Pond for marine life and discover why these animals need this habitat to survive. Classes may take specimens back to the classroom to set up aquariums for long-term study.
