Twenty enthusiastic students joined our five-day Ka Papa Kai Summer program and learned all about marine science through fun and exciting, hands-on activities designed to increase their knowledge of our unique marine ecosystem. The students learned about the tide pool habitat, species identification, marine debris and environmental stewardship, erosion and coral health, and enforcement of rules and regulations.
Highlights included a beach cleanup and marine debris art, caring for our native plant garden area, tide pool species surveys and research, and a visit from Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE) officers.
Mahalo to VOLCOM for donating the awesome rash guards, to the North Shore Lifeguard Association, and to all the parents.
