For High School Teachers
LiMPETS (Long-term Monitoring Program and Experiential Training for Students) is a free environmental monitoring and education program for students, educators, and volunteer groups. This hands-on program was developed to monitor the ocean and coastal ecosystems of California's National Marine Sanctuaries to increase awareness and stewardship of these important areas.
The Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District and the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History invite your students to participate in free environmental education programming designed to connect students to their local watershed and open spaces. Participating classrooms will engage in a inquiry-based experience focused on the Carmel River watershed. Our goal is to provide students with the opportunity to “walk the watershed.” Over the course of several trip, students will visit multiple sites on the Carmel River and participating in hands-on experiences that inspire a deeper connection to the environment and greater understanding of our natural resources. Programs are customized for specific grade levels utilizing Next Generation Science Standards and California Common Core standards.
