JUNEAU, Alaska – The Coast Guard Cutter Sycamore hosted over 20 guests from Cordova High School Monday for a marine biology field trip.

The crew of the Sycamore provided a platform for the local high school students to conduct scientific experiments, observe local sea birds and learn about the environmental affects of oil spills.

Sea creatures such as star fish and other assorted sea life that inhabit Coast Guard aids to navigation were provided by the Sycamore for scientific inspection and observation by the students.

The students and teachers ate lunch on board and received tours of the Sycamore.

The field trip successfully provided eighteen high school students with a chance to conduct college-level experiments with world-class scientists, along with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the Coast Guard.
