Meet at Pillar Point in Princeton, Half Moon Bay for a guided, hands-on immersion into the rocky intertidal habitat. Instructors guide students through the wet and rocky terrain to discover the fishes and invertebrates that inhabit the tidepools. Using scientific tools including identification keys and transects, students study and safely handle the flora and fauna that are uniquely adapted to the dynamic tidal ecosystem. Program is 2.5 hours long. Availability is tide dependent.
