Fifth graders in Guadalupe to get hands-on learning at the dunes

Elementary school children will be getting some hands-on environmental education thanks to a $60,000 grant.

The Cachuma Resource Conservation District got the money from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Fifth grade students at Mary Buren Elementary School will help study the water shed at the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes, which means some extra field trips, and in-class lessons.

The students will be exploring the source of pollution, in the ground and in the water around us. They will also get to visit The Marine Science Institute Research Experience and Education Facility (REEF) at UCSB.
