“Learning Journey Under the Sea,” Mount Madonna School’s 9th and 10th grade Catalina Island trip, May 2015. A big thank you to our hosts, the USC Wrigley Center (10th grade) and the Catalina Environmental Leadership Program (9th grade) for providing such a beautiful location to study ocean life!
Each year, the 9th and 10th grade classes travel to southern California and study the ocean around Catalina. The Isthmus of Catalina has become a rich area full of educational opportunities. In addition to several programs for young people, a research facility, the Wrigley Marine Science Center, maintained by the University of Southern California Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies, is used by graduate programs, the state and federal government, research divers, and academics from around the world.
