What You Need to Know
What fitness level is required?
During this event, we will stay localized in the same area. Please be able to walk about a mile. Also, be able to bend over and squat down to complete plant removal and restoration. Please understand your physical limitations and be aware that we are able to modify all of these activities to match your fitness level.
Why is this event free?
Ocean Connectors is a nonprofit program with a mission to educate, inspire, and connect youth in underserved Pacific coastal communities through the study of migratory marine life. Our goal is to empower local residents to experience local ecosystems and make a difference. We believe that cost shouldn’t be a barrier.
What is citizen science?
Citizen science is the practice of public participation and collaboration in research to increase scientific knowledge. Citizen science helps with gathering scientific data as well as fostering community involvement. On this tour we will use apps like iNaturalist and Seek. Data collected using these can play an increasingly important role in science and conservation, with applications ranging from research and monitoring to species management, habitat protection, and informing law and policy.
How can I give back and support youth education?
If you feel called to do so, we graciously accept donations to help us cover our costs and support our education programs.
