Meet @ Morro Bay State Park Marina next to Bayside Cafe

4th grade and above

This week, Much of our exploration will be from kayaks, allowing us to observe marine life at water level.  we will examine and discuss the lifecycles of various marine organisms, and students will develop a journal of marine organisms found during our explorations. We'll conduct Water quality tests on Chorro Creek and Osos Creek as well as Sweet Springs in Baywood. We'll examine the changes in salinity, turbidity, and other water quality parameters from the harbor mouth and Back bay as well.  We'll spend time with the Morro Bay Harbor Patrol learning about rescue operations and general duties of the harbor patrol within the estuary. We'll get an overview of Morro Bay aquaculture at the Grassy Bar Oyster Farm, and we'll have a beach scavenger hunt to discover what wonders and blunders are found in the beach wrack. We'll finish the week on a whale watching cruise with Sub Sea Tours to search for Humpbacks and other marine mammals in Estero Bay.
