An unforgettable experience where participants become field scientists as they camp on island, create their own night plankton light traps using recycled materials, form hypotheses and deploy their traps to collect living plankton and discover the results.

Offered weekends from Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday. Boat fees are included in the program fee.
