Description

This three-hour intertidal foraging expedition will blow your mind!

These tours are scheduled at the lowest of low tides so you will be sure to see a vast intertidal smorgasbord of shellfish, (clams, limpets, rock crabs, goose barnacles, mussels) fish (monkeyface eels, grass rock fish, cabezon) and sea weeds (bull kelp, rock weed, nori, sea lettuce) and various other creatures! This class is a mix of “how-to” info, regulations, sustainability, ecology, and more.  Though you won’t be able to forage for yourself on this tour, Kirk can give away anything that he catches and gathers — potentially quite a lot of stuff!
