Review for Environmental Volunteers, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Third graders learn about the ocean environment and visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium. A popular activity is the touch tanks, where children can touch a living animal. Environmental Volunteers lead trips to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Landing so that students can see and touch these beautiful creatures in their natural tide pool habitat. Excitedly, students learn about animals' lives while interacting with nature. They soak in the sights and sounds of the waves on the beach as the animals cling to the rocks. Students absorb a profound understanding of the interrelationships between the animals and their habitats that isn't observed in a book, movie, or aquarium. The volunteers do a marvelous job of helping students gain a healthy respect for the fragility and magic of the ocean.
