Our Ocean and YOU

A writing workshop that shows you how to use your voice to help protect the ocean and its inhabitants

Patricia Newman

45 Minute Program

 

$300


Have you ever been to the ocean? Did you swim, surf, boogie board, snorkel, or scuba dive? I'm happiest on the ocean--not only for fun and fascination, but because our ocean makes life on our planet possible. We'll talk about ocean plastic, the importance of animals like sea otters, and how climate change is also changing our sea. But I also want to hear your thoughts. What does our ocean mean to YOU?

  • Planet Ocean, Sea Otter Heroes, or Plastic, Ahoy!
  • Please read at least one of the above titles before this Talkabook visit
  • Pencil and paper or writing notebook

RECOMMENDED AGES
Ages 8 and up (family members welcome)
