Organization Description: 

Welcome to one of the richest intertidal ecosystems along the Pacific Coast. Twice a day, up to 200 species of scuttling, wriggling creatures are stranded by the retreating tide in 30 acres of tide pools.
Step cautiously across wet, slippery rocks. Foam bubbles flecking the surface of newly formed pools quickly burst, revealing a bustling community of crabs, mussels, clams, urchins, starfish, and anemones.
A roving naturalist is sometimes available at low tide on weekends. Visit NOAA's tide charts to check for low tide. Also, visit the Marine Reserve's website for more information.
