About the Institute
Join us to examine the role that humans have played in the stability and change of Monterey Bay. Explore our vibrant, local environment through field investigations. Make conservation issues and action relevant to students through development of a sense of place. Topics may include climate change science; physics, chemistry and biology of the kelp forest; plastic pollution; and sustainable seafood. Sessions will be held at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and local field sites.
