Classroom Visits and Cleanups
Speakers Bureau volunteers give presentations on the causes and consequences of ocean pollution and inspire people to take action. It’s free, educational and interactive. Request a Speaker.
Cleanups connect students to the ocean no matter where they live. When you register your class for a cleanup, we will provide you with all the supplies you need, as well as a safety talk. After the cleanup, enter the types of trash you found and allow your class to compare data and create graphs, using the Marine Debris Database.
