This homeschool day has a Stay & Play option — meaning if you have younger kids or if you'd like to stay and play to join in the fun...or drop your children, age 6 and up off for the morning.

Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserves and The Nature Teacher are excited to offer a wonderful Eco Education Program — Bayologist Homeschool Days, one Tuesday a month, 10am-1 or 2pm – an experiential day of learning for your children. This program is geared to children age 6 and up, drop the kids off for a day of play, adventure and marine study.

*The family is invited to stay and learn alongside your 6 and ups on *Stay & Play Boat Days and other select days.

Each Bayologist Day we will take an in-depth look at the natural science and cultural history of Biscayne Bay with a theme of study, a game and/or activity, netting and shore searching (water play only happens on planned days, with adequate supervision)(weather permitting), or a cruise on the bay aboard the Pelican Skipper (weather permitting).

Perfect for adventurous children with an interest in coastal and marine habitats.

All proceeds go to support the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserves.
