Event description

Students will experience three programs in their visit at Port Royal Sound Foundation. We are excited to enjoy all three programs for one price.

K-6th will be split into two groups and will enjoy all these programs in a rotation:

1-Animal Classification 101 – Students learn to identify and classify different animals found in the Lowcountry using models, furs, bones, and live animals.

2-Fish Prints – Students will learn about plastic pollution, recycling, reducing, and reusing all while making their own custom fish printed canvas bag.

3-Eco-boat tour – Enjoy a journey on the Chechessee river with Captain Amber Kuehn while she shares her vast knowledge of the salt marsh ecosystem through interactions and demonstrations all while on her sea worthy vessel, Spartina.

7th-12th will move through upper level rotations:

1-Animal Classification – Students learn to identify and classify different animals found in the Lowcountry using more challenging models, furs, bones, and live animals.

2-Animal Identification – the museum staff will be pulling out their microscopes for our upper-level students and spending time taking a closer look at animal identification.
