EIGHT GRADE FIELD STUDY
Marine Lab, Key Largo, Florida
The eighth grade class participates in a marine ecology program developed by MarineLab, owned and operated by the non-profit organization, Marine Resources Development Foundation. The site offers easy access to seagrass, mangroves, and the only coral reef off the continental United States. Through four days of hands-on investigation and snorkeling field trips, preceded by biologist-led discussions focusing on the ecology and biology of these unique communities, students are provided learning opportunities that extend far beyond the classroom.
