Wetland Exploration Program
The Bolsa Chica Conservancy's (BCC) Wetlands Exploration Program (WEP) is a STEM-based program that provides opportunities for middle, high school and college students and teachers to learn about wetland ecology through inquiry-based learning modules that engage them in hands-on research. The program engages students in a variety of field studies that stimulate critical thinking using math, science and technology. Today, local high schools and middle schools include the Conservancy's Wetland Exploration Program as an option for AP and IB students or regular science classes to select in their curriculum choices, as this program fulfills the field study requirement for these classes.
