This field trip includes a beach walk at Coral Cove Park on Jupiter Island. In addition to a sandy beach, Coral Cove Park also includes an Anastasia limestone formation which has been eroded by the waves. The rocky shoreline includes opportunities to search for marine life in the tide pools and collect numerous sea shells. This is a biblically-based event so discussion will include both biological information as well as how we can see the character of God in Creation.
As the waves constantly crash against the rocks, creating salt spray even at low tide, YOU WILL GET WET! It is recommended that participants wear swimsuits under their clothes and beach appropriate footwear. Shoes are required as the rough limestone can be sharp in various places. Personal items such as electronic devices, wallets or cameras must be sealed in plastic, waterproof bags or left in a safe place in your vehicle. Participants will meet in the parking lot next to the playground at Coral Cove Park (19450 County Hwy 707, Tequesta, FL 33469).
Cost: $20 per person
