Marine Biology & Ecology (Age 14-17)
Youth Education

Discover the fascinating worlds of salt, brackish, and freshwater ecosystems and how various organisms adapt to their own unique environment. Whether they live in the desert or on the shore, examine the intricate relationships between plants, fish, mammals, humans, and nonliving components of each ecosystem. You will use games to better understand how overfishing affects our oceans, build a bio-active terrarium, and learn how data from one animal can tell us about the health of an entire ecosystem! Plus, you will take a trip to an aquarium, visit the Natural History Museum of Utah, and explore a local stream!
