Marine Science 3: Estuaries and Beyond


Jun 27,2016 - Jul 1,2016 Time: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Marine Science students will explore Morro Bay Estuary while gaining appreciation for the ecological importance of estuaries, in sustaining marine life in the open ocean.  Marine science discussions will cover local marine birds, summer migrants, and we'll visit the peregrine falcon's that patrol the estuary.  During “Belly Biology” on the docks, we’ll study the many organisms that make their homes underneath. We’ll explore the salt marsh, mudflats, and rocky shores of the harbor mouth.  Much of our marine science exploration will be from kayaks, allowing us to observe marine life at water level.  We’ll visit an oyster farm, and explore the sand spit dunes and beaches which offers miles of open shoreline for wandering, and scavenger hunts. Well examine effects of tide cycles on life in the estuary, learn to read tide charts, and use them to understand how the gravitational forces of the Sun and Moon effect tide cycles. Friday, we’ll finish the week by boarding a Sub-Sea charter boat for a 2-3  hour whale watching cruise to track humpbacks, blue whales, and dolphins!

We will explore the tidal zones of Morro Bay, searching for life among the rocks.  We’ll have kayak scavenger hunts, looking for marine invertebrates along the docks and piers.   We’ll also explore dune systems around Estero Bay that offer great opportunities for rolling and tumbling in the sand. We'll visit an oyster farm, the Harbor Patrol Pier, the Natural History Museum, and the National Estuary Program Exhibit for a watershed activity. We will close out the week by going on a Sub Sea bay tour boat with a below decks underwater viewing section. We'll take a ride on the trolley and lunch on the Embarcadero.

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


Aug 8,2016 - Aug 11,2016 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 dubes of Hazard's Canyon and the Sandspit beach, and  go on scavenger hunts along the shoreline while observing the various marine animals and birds who live here. Its also a great place for observing humpback whales that migrate here in Summer.
