The Sanctuary Visitor Center offers a variety of grade specific, lively, hands-on programs for students grades K-6. Programs are two hours long and take place in the Sanctuary classroom, Visitor Center, and on beautiful Crissy Field Beach.
Can’t make it to the Visitor Center – no problem! Our At Your School programs bring the ocean to your classroom. We have programs for K-12 that encourage your students to discover the wonder of ocean science without leaving the school grounds. Programs are standards-based and topics vary by grade and include crabs, sharks, marine birds and how scientists study sea life.
Middle and High School Monitoring Programs
Students and teachers are monitoring the shores of our National Marine Sanctuaries through the LiMPETS Program.
The LiMPETS network is directed by a collaborative effort among California’s National Marine Sanctuaries, Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association and others. FMSA is a vital partner in the LiMPETS network. In addition to coordinating monitoring activities in the Gulf of the Farallones region, FMSA supports the statewide LiMPETS network by leading the development of curriculum, website, database interface, training materials, teacher workshops, and other crucial infrastructure pieces that let the LiMPETS project easily be adopted and replicated throughout the region.
Teacher Workshops and Resources
Interested in resources, marine science curricula, and teacher workshops? Most of FMSA's free education resources and curricula are available online. In addition, books, media, and posters can be purchased at the Visitor Center.
