Field Trip to the Gulf of the Farallones Marine National Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center

On March 4th, we had the pleasure of working with two scientists from the Visitor Center at the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary.  We watched seastars eat.  We felt the thick fur that keeps sea otters warm.  We pretended to be sea otters, diving deep to crack open abalone shells.  On the beach, we learned about the natural and artificial items to be found in the sand, and the importance of keeping this vital habitat clean.

Thank you to the parents who drove. We couldn’t do our field trips without you!!IMG_0477 IMG_0478 IMG_0482 IMG_0486 IMG_0488 IMG_0490 IMG_0491 IMG_0492 IMG_0493 IMG_0494 IMG_0500 IMG_0501 IMG_0508 IMG_0512 IMG_0515 IMG_0517 IMG_0520 IMG_0522 IMG_0525 IMG_0526 IMG_0531 IMG_0535 IMG_0538 IMG_0540 IMG_0542
