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. An aquarium chiller, if it is available, can be lent to you. Many teachers obtain grant money or funding through other sources for the equipment needed. For more information about how to get started in the program, please contact Jennifer O’Brien.

Volunteers: Help is needed in a variety of ways including delivering eggs or equipment to classrooms, classroom presentations, and assisting with field trips. Angling Clubs and other organizations may donate their time and/or resources. For more information about volunteer opportunities, contact Jennifer O’Brien.

Trout in the Classroom Teacher Workshops
