New York Sea Grant is partnering with CCE Nassau County to offer a series of marine field trips for summer campers. This exciting program features hands-on activities for students ages 10-14 years. Summer campers will learn to use a beach seine, study plankton, participate in scavenger hunts, bird watching, shark dissections, arts and crafts, and more!
