Dunes and Sandy Beaches and Marine Mammals


Jul 25,2016 - Jul 29,2016 Time: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
This is going to be a hybrid mix week, that will indeed include exploring beaches and dunes from Oso Flaco to San Simeon; but, we will also be engaged in an in depth study of the lifestyles and behaviors of various marine mammals that are either residents ( sea otters, harbor seals, and sea lions) or seasonal visitors (elephant seals). We'll kayak out to "Otter Cove" for observations with a stop at the sea lion ramp on the way. Students will record their daily observations in journals along with sketches of the ecosystems and wildlife.

Marine Science 5: Back Bay to Breakwater @ Morro Bay Estuary


Aug 1,2016 - Aug 5,2016 Time: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
This camp is an all water week, from Monday to Friday we'll be cruising.g Morro Bay by kayak.  We'll explore the two Chorro and Osos Creeks which deliver  freshwater to the estuary, and cruise the harbor mouth where salt water flows in with the rising tides. We'll explore the sand spit dunes and beaches on both sides, and also  l.earn about aquaculture from oyster and abalone farmers. We'll learn all about the Harbor Patrol, and its unique  mission, and explore the Morro Bay Estuary Program exhibit to find out ways to become involved with maintaining the health of the estuary.

Marine Science 6: Exploring Montana de Oro to Ragged Point


Aug 8,2016 - Aug 12,2016 Time: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

This week we will explore the coves, tidepools, marine terraces, dunes and beaches of Montana de Oro State Park.  This unique area represents the largest state park in area, in the state.  It's also unique in that the coastal geology of this area is unlike any other on the Central Coast. We'll climb Valencia Peak Jr, (about 900 ft up) to view the coastline from Avila to Cayucos, and search for marine fossils embedded in the shale formations.  We'll explore the dunes of Hazard's Canyon and the Sandspit beach.  We will also explore the rocky shores of Cayucos, San Simeon and Ragged Point.

Coastal Geology 3: Stone Soup II


Aug 15,2016 - Aug 19,2016 Time: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
California’s coastal geology began in the ocean. Our state is a compilation of Pacific Plate island arcs; like the Hawaiian Island chain, that converged and were forced by subduction under the North American Plate, until the appearance of the San Andrea Fault.  The Central Coast exhibits visible evidence of our geological history from Guadalupe to Big Sur.  Here on the coast, we sit on a constantly shifting piece of the Earth’s crust and we’re also on the western rim of “The Ring of Fire” where the majority of the earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and plate shifting occurs. For millions of years, the topography of California has been shaped and reshaped by glaciers, plate tectonics, volcanic activity, and earthquakes.    In Montana de Oro State Park, we’ll explore wave-cut marine terraces, shale coves, and sand dunes, and climb 220,000 yr-old Valencia Peak; an uplifted marine terrace rising  1347 feet above the park.  We'll explore Bishop’s Peak, one of the seven named volcanic plugs known locally as the "Seven Sisters", and examine the pillow lava formations near Port San Luis.  We’ll explore the Oso Flaco Lake Dunes and the Pismo Dunes Reserve.  Field trips take us to Pinnacles National Monument near King City to explore the Talus caves, and we’ll also visit the “Earthquake Capital of the World” Parkfield, Calif.  On the way we’ll stop at the San Andreas Fault so students can explore the fault line up close and see the visible effects of fault activity.
