Delta Discovery Program

Each year, the Robert G. Brownlee carries close to 5,000 students to the Delta for a voyage of discovery, education, and pleasure.

Classroom science lessons come alive for fifth graders on the RV Robert G. Brownlee, a 90-foot-long research vessel that provides a safe and stable floating laboratory for students. The ship is owned and operated by the Marine Science Institute of Redwood City. Central San co-sponsors a three-and-a-half hour excursion on the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta where students learn about the source of their drinking water and the importance of pollution prevention.

This unique opportunity is available in January and February at no charge to fifth grade classes within central Contra Costa County. For more information, call Justin Fivella at (925) 688-8307.
