Plan Your Event


Learning Lessons and Curricula

If you want to learn, teach or have fun, you can check out these sources for a number of ocean-related lesson plans:

Field Trips

Give students a hands-on learning experience by hosting a field trip to an educational or engaging area. This could be visiting a local aquarium or zoo, going to the beach, or taking a walk at a nature reserve. These types of events are great for instilling a passion for marine ecosystems and wildlife.
Some zoos and aquariums event have docent-led virtual field trips, like this one at the LA Zoo!

Presentations and Workshops

Host a presentation or workshop at your local school! Invite an ocean hero or conservation organization to speak to your students. Alternatively, create your own presentation about the ocean. Focus these presentations on marine protected areas and the 30×30 initiative. Make it exciting and interactive by using films, music, games, and outdoor activities. Youth engagement is incredibly important for fostering future environmentalists.
