SCIENCE IN THE FIELD
Middle school students investigated coastal ecology at Sandy Beach Park on February 5th! With Hawai'i Nature Center educators, students learned about marine debris and cleaned up the beach. Students also explored tide pools and collected environmental and biodiversity data.
This exciting day of experiential, outdoor science learning was the makai component of our From Mauka to Makai: Understanding Climate Change Impacts in the Ahupua’a program. Students will be working on the program's culminating conservation projects this spring.
