How much do you know about the natural Gulf coast? Join us to see Gulf coast ecosystems firsthand, explore their geology; investigate their physical features, weather, and climate; measure their abiotic characteristics; learn about the plants and animals that live in each, their morphology, homes, behavior, life cycles, and food webs; and discuss human effects and possible solutions on these increasingly impacted habitats. This workshop is designed for elementary school teachers and will provide ocean examples that can be used to teach many of the required education standards. Please note that we will spend a considerable portion of our time outdoors exploring and sampling these habitats.
