Everyone contributes to the problem of marine debris, whether we realize it or not. At Save Our Shores, we strive to make it easier for people to understand the issue of marine debris and the steps that they can take to reduce their impact. Our Marine Education Programs provide opportunities for learning whether you are in a classroom or the community.
Plastic Pollution Classroom Education Programs: We provide an interactive and fun learning environment to elementary, middle, and high school students. What we teach them promotes a sense of wonder, empowerment, and connection to the ocean and our watersheds. Find out all you need to know on our Classroom Education Page...
Private Group Presentations: SOS provides presentation to civic groups, businesses, and places of worship. Your group will receive a 30-60 min. presentation on the impacts of marine debris in our coastal environment. Because this is a visual presentation, groups will need a screen or wall to project on, SOS will bring the rest.
The Sanctuary Steward Docent Program: Each year, we inspire, teach and train a new class of Sanctuary Stewards - the core volunteer force of Save Our Shores. Anyone enthusiastic about the ocean and interested in working with the public is invited to apply! We are looking for leaders ready to get working for our oceans.
Ocean Currents Lecture Series: This lecture series gives community members a chance to hear about current marine conservation issues from experts in the field. Past lecturers include Marcus Erickson and Anna Cummins of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation. All events are posted on our Calendar.
Tabling & Outreach Events: Local festivals and events give us the chance to meet our community members face to face and raise awareness about the critical issues facing our oceans today. We're always recruiting for volunteers!
