The beach as our classroom? Not too shabby! In this one-of-a-kind experience, we head down to the edge of the water to explore the sandy shore ecosystem. Students will collect plant and animal evidence and use field guides to identify and sort what they find. We’ll meet a live local animal and walk away with an appreciation for the amazing aquatic organisms that call Coney Island home.

Program dates available September through mid-November and April through June.
