Organism Classification: Classification is the arrangement of objects, ideas, or information into groups. Organism classification groups all living things on the basis of certain characteristics they have in common and uses Latin words to give each animal and plant a name that identifies the organism. This field trip exposes students to methods used by scientists to classify organisms. 

Program Length: 2  hours 


A River of Sand (Beach Study):  The River of Sand trip will explore the unique and ever-changing beach environment. Students will study the beach and dune ecosystems, focusing on the forces that threaten their stability and the organisms that contribute to a fascinating community. 

Note: This program meets on Tybee Island. 

Program Length: Approximately 2 hours 

Marine Ecology: Marine ecology includes the study of the ocean, estuaries, tidal creeks, and salt marshes. Students will take a closer look at how living and non-living things interact in the tidal creek habitat. Students will observe and identify marine organisms, and investigate some of the abiotic factors that may have an effect on them. 

Program Length: 2 hours
