The Sea-to-See program begins with a video field trip into four coastal habitats. The students "slog" through a salt marsh and then "snorkel" through seagrass and across a sand bottom.
Following the video, the students investigate in two touch tanks, one filled with animals from the salt-marsh, oyster bar, and sand bottom, and the other filled with animals from seagrass beds.
Sea urchins are one of the more exciting seagrass animals. Sea-to-Sea participants learn that they aren't dangerous or poisonous, but instead are interesting animals that move, eat, and decorate themselves.
