Marine Science 1: Estuaries and Beyond


Jun 6,2016 - Jun 10,2016 Time: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Students will explore Morro Bay Estuary and learn the importance of estuaries, in the lives of marine animals and birds.  We’ll observe nesting local marine birds and their feeding behaviors. We’ll observe summer migrants traveling along the Pacific Flyway, as well as local raptors (hawks, falcons, and osprey) that patrol the estuary.  We will also Kayak the entire bay during the week. Students will learn about Aquaculture (marine farming) by visiting an oyster farm in the bay, and The Abalone Farm in Cayucos. During “Belly Biology” (observing invertebrates living under the docks, while laying on your belly!) we’ll examine the invertebrates that make their homes underneath. We’ll explore the salt marsh, mudflats, and the harbor mouth where the Sea otters hang out.  Students will learn to read tide charts, and will observe the effects of tide cycles on estuary life. On Friday’s we’ll finish the week by boarding a Sub-Sea charter boat for a whale watching cruise to track humpback whales and other marine mammals. When we dock, we’ll grab some lunch at Giovanni’s on the Embarcadero.
