Chapman 4th Grade Peterson Bay Trip

Our fourth grade class will be spending 2 days and nights at the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies' Peterson Bay Field Station.  

Here is what we will be experiencing and learning about.......

Unmatched intertidal areas are within easy walking distance of Peterson Bay Field Station. More than 50 species of intertidal invertebrates are commonly observed during beach field trips during the extreme minus tides that occur each month in Kachemak Bay.
Marine live tanks and aquaria are set up and maintained after the danger of frost is over to provide a diversity of marine invertebrates for student observation.

A trail system at Peterson Bay Field station provides opportunities for beach and forest hikes. Students take part in botany, ethnobotany, and forest ecology studies and activities along forest trails that wind through the northern edge of the coastal forest. The forest currently provides a living laboratory of ecological change.

A prehistoric Native house site and nearby shell midden provide a glimpse of cultural history at Peterson Bay

A science lab room at the Peterson Bay Field Station is equipped with microscopes for in-depth study or marine invertebrates, plants, and lichens. 

Gravel beaches are accessible during low tide for outdoor games. Campfires can be built.

For more information please visit the Center For Alaskan Coastal Studies website.

The trip costs $150 dollars per person.   This fee includes the round trip boat ride and lodging.
