Catalina island serves as a unique and diverse setting for K-12 students to complete their science education. Numerous areas of the island provide an opportunity for students to engage in outdoor science education that is enriched in the classroom setting. Research shows that students continue to build on their understanding while establishing connections through outdoor education experiences. Through a grant funded by the Keck Foundation, the Catalina Island Conservancy has made it their goal to provide an engaging, hands-on, NGSS lesson for each grade level on Catalina while promoting stewardship on the island. A partnership between California State University Long Beach and the Catalina Island Conservancy provided the unique opportunity to develop a NGSS conservation mini unit for the high school biology classroom on Catalina Island. The mini unit addresses the three dimensions of the NGSS, Catalina Ecological Principles and includes indoor and outdoor components.
