Come dive into Marine Protected Areas in Northern California! Join State Park Interpreter Angie Edmunds for a virtual field trip into the deep sea.
Program Topic: Dive into Northern California's Marine Protected Areas with North Coast State Parks
General Description: Dive into California’s northernmost Marine Protected Areas to discover how the ocean is more than meets the eye. Whether we are uncovering the mysteries of the deep sea, investigating the crashing waves on sandy beaches, or sifting through submerged eelgrass forests, California’s MPAs are living classrooms waiting to be explored. Students will be introduced to (sometimes bizarre) ocean creatures through learning about their dynamic habitats while we discuss why it is vital to protect and preserve the watery world.
