Florida Keys

As soon as possible, LS F, LS G, US A & US B students will explore the marine biology, diversity and natural beauty of the Florida Keys. Students will work hard before the trip to be fully prepared, then will be rewarded by being able to observe mangroves, lobsters, fish, birds, coral, and even the elusive key deer.  The trip will include an interactive stay at Mote Marine’s Summerland Key Research Center where they will study marine life and snorkel on the nearby reefs.  The trip will also include a visit to the unique community of Key West, with its historic and cultural attractions. After fully resting from this trip, students will apply their newfound knowledge in their classes to address various environmental concerns of the Keys.
