Topic: We are bringing in special guest instructors from “I Love a Clean San Diego” to give two 45-minute presentations on recycling, pollution, food webs, resource conservation, and human impacts on ecosystems (more details below in the Presentation Descriptions section). Each presentation includes a hands-on activity, and there will be a 15-minute snack/bathroom break in between each topic.

Recycling & HHW (45-minute presentation and activity): The Recycling presentation acts as an introduction to the environment, recycling, household hazardous waste, composting, and organic waste recycling. The students will get a chance to understand the importance of reducing waste by practicing the model of reduce, reuse, and recycle. Throughout the presentation, the students will put their new knowledge into action through an interactive waste sorting activity. They will leave understanding the power of their small daily actions on the health of San Diego.
Otter Nonsense (45-minute presentation and activity): Students will discover how pollution affects our local watersheds as it enters our rivers through storm drains and flows toward the Pacific Ocean. They will learn the important, yet delicate balance in an ecosystem as we discuss the relationship between sea otters, sea urchins, and kelp. We cover food webs, resource conservation, and human impacts on fragile ecosystems. Students will leave with challenge cards inspiring small actions to keep our environment and waterways clean. This presentation is very interactive as students will be able to participate in a game based on the information they learn!
