All youth courses are designed to engage students in interactive, hands-on activities in a fun, inquiry-based learning environment.

Experience more than

100 species of marine plants and animals found in the Puget Sound. Our tide pool touch tank allows you to interact with many animals and sea life you might find along a local beach walk.
