Science Program Registration


Reservation Directions 

Science Ranger-led programs are offered Monday-Friday. The maximum number of students per program is 35. Certain programs are dependent on tidal cycles.  If your group is larger than 35, you will need to reserve multiple time slots for the day.  If your group is larger than 70, you will need to reserve multiple days.

Step 1 - Choose the program that best fits with your grade-level and area of study.

Step 2 - Check the calendar for available dates and times.
