ID : 7316   
« back to classes page
Sea Otters are amazing, adorable, and vitally important to our coastal ecosystems. Discover the captivating sea otter survival story, and explore the beautiful sea otter habitat in Moss Landing, with an expert guide. This updated version of our ever-popular annual Sea Otter Adventure begins with a presentation and photographic journey, 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, the chance to view the sea otters, and to make new friends!

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 Dr. Gary Griggs, exploring the sometimes-complex relationship between humans and nature.

The afternoon includes about a mile of light hiking. Students should bring a lunch. Detailed directions to the field trip location are provided in the morning lecture portion of class.
