The K-12 Field Classes at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab are available through Discovery Hall Programs with a variety of field trips, labs, and lectures designed especially for students of those ages. These programs are available from September through May and are by reservation only.

Each program consists of a half-day field/lecture or a half-day lab/lecture experience. Programs may be incorporated into short day trips, or into 1 to 4-day field trips for groups staying overnight. Due to the availability of classroom space, the maximum number of participants allowed per activity is 35, unless otherwise stated.
