Seaside Sustainability programs are built on a foundation that emphasizes the importance of sustainability in harboring an earth in which future generations will be able to thrive. Seaside Education Adventure (SEA) was the first program to grow out of this idea, and pairs marine ecology ideas with hands-on nature learning. This combination introduces local youth to the short and long term effects of a variety of ocean threats. These boat-based trips take students out onto the water to learn about oceanography, water sustainability, and ecosystem balance.

This year, Seaside Sustainability is offering two SEA programs:
SEA Yacht Sailing ($345)
This week-long session takes a new approach to learning how to sail and learning about the ocean. New and experienced participants will sail on the Frayed Knot, a fully-outfitted 50 ft yacht to learn the in’s and out’s of yacht sailing. After learning the ropes, new skippers will learn about their own roles in the relationship between humans and the natural marine environment by collecting and analyzing marine debris and water quality samples. We’ll also get up close and personal with the marine environment when we snap on our masks and snorkels to explore the wonders of the underwater world!
SEA Yacht Sailing Dates:
Week 1 (Ages 8-15) July 17-21, 2017
Week 2 (Ages 8-15) July 24-28, 2017
SEA Marine Life Exploration ($445)
In this exciting hands-on program for youth, participants will get their feet wet, their hands dirty, and will find their minds reeling as they learn about the vital role the ocean plays in their daily lives. They will learn first-hand how the marine biology and ecology that we so often take for granted are interconnected with—and influenced by—human actions. SEA's Marine Life Exploration is one of two ocean-based summer programs which offers a unique, fun, safe, and exciting approach to exploring the marine ecosystems surrounding Manchester Harbor and beyond!
SEA Marine Life Exploration Dates:
Week 1 (Ages 8-15) June 26-30, 2017
Week 2 (Ages 8-15) July 10-14, 2017
