Anacapa Island Tour

As part of RAIN's Camp Internet Summer 1999 Teacher Training Workshop, the teachers met at the Channel Islands National Park headquarters at the Ventura Harbor, where they were briefed about the weeks events before embarking on an exploratory trip to Anacapa Island. Island Packers naturalist Jean Scholes gave the tour of the Island, complete with talks about island life and history, and a marine life "Creature Feature" presentation. Below is some footage from this fun and exciting event.
