Experience life as a Marine Biologist and earn credit*!

For 35 years Michael and Denise Lane have taken students down to the Florida Keys to experience life as marine biologist researchers and deepen their relationship with God. This will be their first time running it with E4F. High school students can even earn credits*!

This course is a hands-on approach to Marine Biology under the beautiful sunshine of Florida. Every day will be spent visiting different habitats, collecting specimens, classifying those specimens, and engaging lectures. All work is done in a small group setting. This class is a lot of fun and a lot of work!
