10:00am – 2:00pm
Point Defiance Marina
Come join Communities for a Healthy Bay and University of Washington Tacoma science students for a fun filled Environmental Justice Camp where we will collect plankton using a light trap, look at larval crabs and other creatures in the microscope, and learn how marine biology students conduct research. We will meet at Point Defiance Marina at 5912 N. Waterfront Drive, Tacoma, WA 98407
This event will happen rain or shine. We will be outside for most of the day and shoes are likely to get wet so students should bring warm layers, rain jackets, rain pants, and waterproof shoes. Please let us know in this form if you would like to borrow any gear.
This program is free and lunch will be provided. We can provide gas cards upon request. Registration is required. Please be mindful of students on the wait list and let us know if you are no longer able to attend.
Please complete a form for each student registering.* Registration does not ensure a space in the program. You will be notified within a week when your registration is confirmed.
Families are invited to attend, but the program will be directed at students and space on boat rides will be prioritized for youth participants.
**Environmental Justice Camps prioritize BIPOC and low-income girls and LGBTQIA+ youth ages 11-18 with activities related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math through a lens of Environmental Justice. Environmental Justice Camps are always free and are currently offered several times throughout the year.
