Del Mar Hills third grade students at Lagoon Days

Del Mar Hills students talk with a ranger about local lagoon life.

Toward the end of the school year, third grade students from the Del Mar Hills Academy of Arts and Sciences participated in Lagoon Days, where they investigated different aspects of area lagoons. With transportation and materials support made possible by a grant from SDG&E, and coordinated by the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority, third grade students from all over the Del Mar Union School District visited six stations at lagoons; the stations were manned by rangers, volunteers, and representatives of the U.S. Geological Society. While at the lagoons, students conducted water experiments, made native seed balls, observed adaptations of the lagoon flora and fauna, and wrote poetry.
