If you (or someone you know), is taking a trip to a coastal (or lake or desert) location, we would love a sample of the sand from your trip.   For each of your destinations, please bring back a zip lock baggie or plastic bottle ½ filled with sand. Make sure that it is completely dry before bagging it up, and label it with the location of where it was collected.

*Please do not take sand from posted marine reserves, or protected areas! Sands can be dropped off in the office, or left for Mrs. Dean in Room 601.

Email with questions. Happy trails!
