Catalina Island Marine Institute – Cherry Cove trip for 5th grade

One of our 5th graders favorite field trips in the past was Catalina. One of our former students wrote this about her experience:

“Catalina Island was a beautiful place to explore. We embarked upon a science adventure that taught marine science and island ecology.

We explored the underwater gardens while snorkeling. We learned about the island’s geological history while hiking beautiful trails. We identified several of the island’s flora and fauna. And, best of all, we were able to take an up-close-and-personal look at many of the creatures living in the ocean with the help of touch tank aquariums.”
