Our Programs Have Bloomed!

As the calendar fills up to the brim, I'm filling my cup of coffee to take Marine CSI's signature program (Watershed Walkabout) on the road! With more pep in my step, I'd like to reflect on where we've been these last few weeks and where we're headed. First, I'd like to thank the Greater Wilmington Business Journal for featuring an article about the business and the program specifically. If you care to check it out, you may access it HERE.

Second, thank you to the two lovely ladies who braved the rain with me to attend our day-long workshop in Surf City. We were well-prepared with rain gear, but stayed dry under the pavilion for most of our activities. Then when it cleared up in the afternoon, we walked out to the marsh to see if we could get a sample of critters, and sure enough, we caught a few! I'll be back in Surf City for our final spring workshop on May 18th. To register for this one or some of our others coming up this summer, follow THIS LINK.

Thank you to Wrightsboro Elementary School in Wilmington, for hosting us in every grade in the last few weeks. Kindergarten through 5th grade enjoyed hands-on activities from our signature program throughout each day I was there and we all had a blast learning about marine life and the conservation of wildlife and ecosystems. This month, I will again be returning for a full week to North Topsail Elementary School to educate each grade there as well. This will be the third year in a row I'll be back!

Also, I will be debuting our latest program - Watershed Walkabout: Young Ecologists - at Johnson Pre-K Center in Wilmington as well. This brand new program features activities based on the units presented in our big books of lessons. I've been able to test some of these activities out with our Cape Fear Academy Marine Science ACE afterschool program that will be wrapping up next week.

To round out our month, I'll be conducting two Girl Scout programs at the Coastal Pines Wilmington Center. These programs are designed to check off the needed requirements for their badges and are adapted directed from the Watershed Walkabout program. Some activities meet all the requirements so girls can receive their badges after just one activity with me!
