    Our classes will be going to the Living Coast Discovery Center on DATE TBD. This trip corresponds to our study of wetlands for Ocean Week and it is a wonderful place to learn about the wetland biome.
     
     
    The bus will depart our school at 8:45 a.m. and we will return to school at 2:00 p.m.  If you are a chaperone and would like to take the bus with the class, please join us, or you may drive down separately or with a carpool, follow the bus, and meet us there.  If you drive to the center, you will need to park in a nearby parking lot and get on our bus at the gate. Or you will take the Discovery Center Shuttle bus into the property which starts running at 10:00 a.m., so you may need to wait in the lot if you don't follow the bus down. There is no guest parking at the LCDC. For directions, please scroll down to the bottom of this page.
