Did you know that an entire ecosystem can be found beneath a dock? Sea anemones, mussels, sponges and barnacles are just a few of the organisms we got to touch during an experiential field trip sponsored by the Superintendents' Environmental Education Consortium (SEEC).
We headed to the Santa Monica Bay in search of marine mammals. We braved choppy waters as we watched sea lions and dolphins, but whales proved elusive today.
SEEC offers free resources to strengthen environmental education. Visit their session on Friday at 12:45 to learn more.
