The Bay is a living classroom, and its future is in the hands of the next generation of Bay users and policymakers. Through our hands-on, experiential learning approach to marine science and environmental education, hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren have been introduced to the Bay, discovering endless possibilities for exploration and inspiration.
