Tidepool Volunteer Training and Field Visit

February 18, 2023 @ 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 education 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 this special ecosystem. Tidepool Roving volunteers stationed on beaches during low tides provide park visitors with a safe and educational experience exploring the tidepools. Additionally, docents provide interpretation when our Touch Table is featured at events or along the coast.

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 is a hybrid event held online and in-person. The zoom session will be from 9AM-11AM. Participants will then meet in-person at the Campbell Cove Beach parking area from 1PM-3PM.

Trainer: Hollis Bewley, Stewards Board Chair and Tidepool Program Coordinator
