Course Description:

Many of us have stood over a tide pool, not quite sure what to make of the natural wonder that lay before us. In this course, three local marine biologists will bring clarity and understanding to these fascinating phenomena as they introduce us to the teeming life in nearshore environments of the Monterey Bay, including algae, fish, invertebrates, and mammals. Three classroom talks will help us develop identification skills for our hands-on tide pool exploration at Point Pinos.
