Field Trips

 

Self-guided visit

Visit Feiro with your classroom or group any day of the week for a self-guided visit to the exhibits – we will work to accommodate your schedule needs.

Facilitated visit

For a more in-depth experience, two staff educators will facilitate hands-on activities during your field trip of up to 30 students for an additional fee.

Select two 45 minute activities (one from each column) from the following to make up to a 90 minute program (includes orientation and transition time between stations in addition to the activities).

 

Classroom Activity Exhibit Activity
Plankton investigation Exhibit scavenger hunt
Build-a-Plankton buoyancy lesson Elwha River model interpretation

If you would like to add on a visit to the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Discovery Center at the Landing Mall, steps from Feiro, you can call them at 360-457-6622 ext. 31 to make a free reservation.

North Olympic Watershed Science Elementary Program

This is a grant funded program offered to specific classrooms and grades. If you would like more information, please call 360-417-6254 or email Rachele

In partnership with the NOAA Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, Olympic National Park and Nature Bridge, we provide field investigations of marine science and watersheds to 4th and 5th grade students from Sequim, Port Angeles, and Crescent schools. These programs support selected Washington state science and Next Generation Science Standards.

4th Grade NOW Science: Systems for Survival: The Impacts of Marine Debris

Learn about the ocean food chain –from plankton to whales – and the feeding mechanisms of the plants and animals in that food chain. Study the origins and effects of marine debris and what happens when marine debris interferes with these ocean inhabitants. Where is that marine debris coming from and what can we do to prevent it from getting into the ocean? What is micro-debris and how is it especially harmful to the ocean living creatures? Find out this, and more, in Systems for Survival: The Impacts of Marine Debris.

Educator Classroom Connections Pre- and Post-Materials Available

Funding is needed to fulfill the 2016-2017 program. We would be grateful for your support.

5th Grade NOW Science: Watershed Investigations

Get an up-close view of Peabody Creek in this field investigation taking you from Olympic National Park to the mouth of the creek at the Port Angeles harbor. Assess its health through data collection and physical observations. Build awareness of how everyday human activities impact, positive and negative, the health of our surrounding watersheds. End with data analysis and hands-on activities at Feiro and the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary headquarters.

This program is supported by the NOAA B-WET (Bay Watershed Education Training) Program.

Ocean Science: Trash Free Seas

This is a grant funded program offered to specific classrooms and grades. If you would like more information, please call 360-417-6254 or email Rachele

Feiro partners on this outreach program with the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. Schools from Clallam Bay to Ocean Shores conduct field investigations on their sandy or rocky beach, including marine life identification and marine debris surveys and activities. Members of local tribes also participate to share traditional ecological knowledge of the boundary between land and sea.

This program is supported in part by the North Pacific Coast Marine Resources Council. Additional funding is needed for the 2016-2017 program. We are grateful for your support
