Upcoming coastal education workshops

Waves, Wetlands, and Watersheds Educator Workshops


When you attend ONE of these workshops, you will receive a FREE copy of the California Coastal Commission's science activity guide for teachers, Waves, Wetlands, and Watersheds. You'll try out some of the activities in the guide and get an overview of the other free educational resources and programs the Coastal Commission has available. You will be eligible for professional growth credit from University of the Pacific upon completing additional work. REGISTER for a workshop by contacting Annie Kohut Frankel at, (415) 597-5888, or (800) Coast4U. These workshops are open to both formal and informal educators.



Waves, Wetlands, and Watersheds is a classroom activity guide for teachers that addresses California's critical coastal and marine issues such as endangered species, marine debris, coastal geology, water use, and much more. It is aligned to the California State Science Content Standards for grades 3 through 8, and includes Community Action lessons adaptable for all ages up to and beyond grade 12. The connection between inland areas and the ocean is emphasized throughout, so the lessons are relevant for students living in all regions of California. For more information, visit
