Marine Life Studies takes kids from Boys & Girls Clubs Whale Watching


Marine Life Studies provided kids from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County, both Seaside and Salinas Units an experience of a life time this summer. Peggy Stap and Jenna Contuchio first taught classes on whales, dolphins and marine wildlife with photos, fun facts and hands-on activities. Children learned how to recognize and identify marine wildlifes, and how the animals eat and stay warm. Then Marine Life Studies took the kids whale watching at Fisherman's Wharf with Princess Monterey Whale Watching. The day ended with a picnic lunch at a park nearby. An amazing experience for the kids as many of them have never even been to the ocean. Marine Life Studies is a Community Partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County.


This program including classes, whale watch and bus transportation for the children provided free of charge to the Boys & Girls Clubs by Marine Life Studies "Joey Jones Scholarship and Educational Fund".  Monies to fund this project were raised through the Monterey County gives! 2010 campaign.
