South Coast Region CAEP: Classroom Aquarium Education Program

Serving Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties


How to Get Involved

Teachers: The first step in getting started is to attend a free workshop. The workshop is required for participation in the program. Many teachers obtain grant money or funding through other sources for the equipment needed.

Volunteers: Help is needed in a variety of ways including delivering eggs to schools, classroom presentations, and assisting with field trips. Angling Clubs and other organizations may donate their time and/or resources.

For more information about how to get started in the program, please contact R5CAEP@wildlife.ca.gov.
