The purpose of the NOAA National Marine Sanctuaries Ocean Guardian Kids Club is to encourage children to explore their natural surroundings to form a sense of personal connection to the ocean and/or watersheds in which they live. The Kids Club offers children a stimulating opportunity to express their insights, observations and understanding of their natural environment through the creation of original stories, poetry and visual art. All K-8 students are eligible and encouraged to join!
Ocean Guardian Kids Club Guidelines:
- The club is open to all students K-8.
- Collaborative projects are accepted, but only a single Ocean Guardian membership card and packet will be presented.
