Otters are amazing and adorable, they are vitally important to our coastal ecosystems, and their story is captivating! Join Kim Steinhardt, author, photographer, and dedicated coastal storyteller, to discover the sea otter survival story, and explore the beautiful otter habitat in Moss Landing with an expert guide. Our 4th annual Sea Otter Adventure begins with a presentation and photographic journey in class, including the latest sea otter conservation news, then a break for lunch before heading to Moss Landing to search for the otters. This annual adventure always yields rich photo opportunities and the chance to view the otters!
Kim will also discuss some of the topics from The Edge: The Pressured Past and Precarious Future of California’s Coast, a new book he has co-authored with local marine expert Gary Griggs.
The afternoon includes about a mile of light hiking and students should bring a lunch. Detailed directions to the field trip location are provided in the morning lecture portion of class.
