The Gulf Coast Bay Buddy Program is a free educational enrichment program that teaches basic conservation concepts to students in grades 1 - 3. Our grade specific curriculum was updated for the 2020 school year and is still tied to our state's course objectives.
Staff and trained community volunteers visit local elementary schools and lead a PowerPoint presentation highlighting the importance of a healthy environment and how student choices can affect the natural world. At the conclusion, all participating students receive an activity booklet reinforcing the lessons taught.
