Be transported to the West Coast as we explore the different levels of a kelp forest ecosytem! Through an exhibit visit and hands-on biofact exploration, students will learn all about the amazing sea otter. We'll get the whole class involved in a kinesthetic game modeling kelp forest interactions and learn about the sea otter's amazing conservation story. We'll finish the program with a live animal encounter from our game!
