Tidepool Volunteer Orientation and Field Exploration

Saturday, February 26 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

| Free

The tidepools on the Sonoma Coast State Park beaches are teeming with multitudes of flora and fauna. From virtually invisible colonies of aggregating anemones to sea stars tucked under kelp, there are fragile intertidal creatures everywhere.

Tidepool volunteers teach school and adult groups how to safely observe and interact with the fascinating life forms of the intertidal zone. Participants learn about the importance of protecting the fragile plants and animals that inhabit the tidepools. During spring and summer on low tide on weekends, Tidepool Roving volunteers are stationed on certain beaches to provide park visitors with a safe and educational experience exploring the tidepools.

No prior experience is necessary! This training is intended for interested or returning volunteers. New volunteers will then shadow experienced volunteers until they feel comfortable on their own. New volunteers are required to attend one Volunteer Orientation, and encouraged to attend our affordable seminars to further their education.

This program and event are led by Hollis Bewley, Stewards Board Chair and Tidepool Program Coordinator.

As a free event, lunch is on your own. Please plan to bring lunch or head across the street to the deli. If you have any questions, please reach out to stewards@stewardscr.org
