Activities Scheduling Fees Policies Handbook

LUMCON specializes in designing powerful marine, environmental, and science learning experiences in the coastal setting surrounding the Marine Center. The activities listed on this page are adaptable to any audience. Work with an educator to schedule the best possible experience to meet the needs of your K-12 or Scouting group.

Educational Schedule

When designing a full or multiple day field trip, please consider the educator schedule (below). This can be modified with good reason and communication between the group leader and the educator. A typical day offers ~10 hours during which LUMCON educators will work with your students (the morning and afternoon sessions run 3.5-4 hours). Otherwise, students are the responsibility of teachers and chaperones while at LUMCON.

Morning session: 8:00 - 12:00 noon
Afternoon session: 1:00 - 5:00 pm
Evening session: 6:30 - 8:30 pm


Below are some of the most popular activities at LUMCON. Other activities or topics may be arranged (for example: wetland restoration, hypoxia, non-point source pollution, careers in marine science, physical oceanography).

Indoor Activities
