CAC Sea to Shore
During this year's Spring Break, CAC will travel
with Dr Noonan to
study wildlife in California. We will focus on the unique
Pacific shoreline (where deep sea trenches approach the land
resulting in an explosion of marine life, and where Pacific moisture nurtures the world's largest
trees). These field studies will take place within the Big Sur landscape,
and in the Monterey Marine Reserve. The dates of travel will be
17-21 April 2019.
wildlife is always unpredictable, we can reasonably expect to
grey whales, elephant seals, sea lions, harbor seals, sea otters,
and 100+ bird species (including the California condor!).
field trip will comprise a self-contained zero-credit experience for the
student participants. The activities and tone of the trip will
be fun and exciting, punctuated with periods of observation and
Participation will include an outreach component via social media. No additional work or assignments will be due
after the completion of the field trip.
Each student's portion of the total cost will be $910.
