The SEA Lab, located in Redondo Beach, CA, was originally founded in 1974 to develop a state-of-the-art fish protection system that was used at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. Twenty years later, Southern California Edison, together with Earth Island Institute, decided to convert the site into a coastal science education center run by the LA Conservation Corps.
The SEA Lab offers variety of no and low cost educational programs targeted to students from Kindergarten to High School. Interactive displays, multimedia trivia games, touch tanks and college students trained by the Los Angeles Conservation Corps, along with dedicated local volunteers, teach students about watershed education, marine biology, water conservation, the food chain and more.
In addition to its in-center programs, the SEA Lab extends its offerings into the community through summer camp programs, community service projects and the Traveling Tidepool mobile exhibit.
The EGBAR Foundation, in conjunction with Simple Green, is proud to have helped install one of the centers more prominent interactive displays, ensuring children an educational and memorable experience at the SEA Lab. It is just one in a long history of programs that the EGBAR Foundation has been honored to work with the LA Conservation Corps on.
