Welcome to Marine CSI!
From hands-on lessons, to resource guides, to educator training workshops, we offer the best quality information at the best price. For those in the southeast region of NC (New Hanover, Brunswick, or Pender Counties), we offer our Watershed Walkabout: Cape Fear K-12 outreach program. If you're not from around here, that's okay. We've got educator resources available to order or at special events. Take a browse, learn about our watershed, or download sample lessons. Come explore and teach Marine CSI with us!
Marine CSI recognizes, respects, and honors the land on which we teach, once thriving with the Indigenous people of the Waccamaw-Siouan, Cape Fear, and Burghaw Indian tribes. We also recognize, respect, and honor those communities who make their home here today. We will continue to teach about these lands, its resources, and its wildlife to become better stewards for the future of the cape Fear region and its people.
Marine CSI's mission is to bring an awareness of the uniqueness of coastal ecosystems, by providing resources and programming for marine science, marine ecology, and marine conservation.
