Guided Discoveries


LOCATION: Santa Catalina Island, CA


AMOUNT ISSUED: $2,500,000 – 501(c)(3) Bond


DATE ISSUED: March 24, 2015


ABOUT: The proceeds are for building a new pier on Button Shell Beach after Hurricane Marie destroyed it in August 2014. The pier is used by Camp Fox, a Guided Discoveries program, which provides hands-on science education in the marine, earth and physical sciences. Without the new pier, Camp Fox would not be able to serve the 62,000 students who attend the program annually or provide 50 jobs. The programs help schools meet state science standards.
