Explore the beauty and mystery of life along the San Diego coast during engaging tidepooling excursions this season with Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. Winter is an excellent time to explore local tide pools because lower tides reveal wider beaches and pools teeming with native marine life, such as hermit crabs, sea hares and sea anemones.
Aquarium naturalists will guide participants through these fragile environments and identify inhabitants.
The cost is $12, ages 2 and older. Directions to meeting place will be provided at time of RSVP. RSVP REQUIRED: 858-534-7336
