Conservation in the Classroom Exhibition
August 9 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until September 5, 2022
The Coastal Discovery Museum is pleased to partner with area elementary schools for Conservation in the Classroom, an environmental education experience that inspires and challenges students to take action and educate others about protecting our natural habitats. Now in its third year, this standard-based program culminates in an exhibition at the museum from July 9 through September 5.
Each school chooses from four themes, including shorebirds, sea turtles, dolphins, and horseshoe crabs. They then work with their classroom teacher and museum educators to learn about the species and the environmental issues that affect them, concluding with a hands-on project that merges science and art to bring that knowledge to life. This year, participating schools include Cross Schools, Hilton Head Island School for the Creative Arts, Hilton Head Prep, Holy Trinity Classical Christian, Pritchardville Elementary, and Sea Pines Montessori.
Coastal Discovery Museum gratefully acknowledges the support of The Bargain Box, Breedlove Foundation, and Palmetto Electric Trust for providing the support that makes this program possible. Additional partners for the exhibition include the Hilton Head Audubon Society and the Palmetto Dunes Cares Foundation.
