Scheduled Classes

We are committed to offering classes that are practical, pertinent, and scientifically based. Most classes are designed to combine classroom time with field time so that you can have a hands-on learning experience.

Thanks to federal funding from NOAA's National Estuarine Reserves Division, we are able to offer you high-value classes at extremely affordable prices.

These classes fill quickly, so you'll want to register right away. After you register, please print out the invoice and submit with your check (we are unable to process credit cards). If the classes are full, please add your name to the waiting list, as space often becomes available.

PLEASE NOTE:  Payment is due no later than two weeks before the class to hold your spot.
