LIFE ON THE ROCKS
Shoreline Education for Awareness (SEA) offers a seminar on tidepool life, “Life on the Rocks,” on Saturday, April 1, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Bandon Community Center (aka The Barn), 1200 11th St., S.W. (next to the library). The public is invited to the free event.
This seminar, third in a series offered by SEA this year, will be presented by local resident and SEA Board Member, Loren Morris, who has a BS/MS from University of Southern California in marine biology. At this seminar Morris will cover the four recognized intertidal zones and then identify the animals, their specialized tools and the plant life that inhabit these zones. He will also discuss how climate change and ocean acidification may affect tidepools. He will provide information on where to find the best of Oregon’s rocky intertidal pool viewing areas.
Following the seminar there will be a field trip to the Coquille Point tide pools where there will be a minus 0.5 tide at 10:22 am.
