TransportedSF Tidepooling Adventure!
We are excited to be visiting Fitzgerald Marine Reserve for one of their low tides. We'll receive a docent led tour and then you'll be able to scamper over rocks and enjoy the sea life!
Please bring warm clothes, walking shoes, sun protection, water and food and a sense of wonder!
Please follow their guidelines:
We encourage visitors to familiarize themselves with the following guidelines to preserve the marine reserve for the enjoyment of the whole community.
Watch your step! Walk carefully around the tidepools for your own safety and to spare the marine life underfoot. Avoid stepping on beds of barnacles, anenmones, mussels, and other tidepool life.
Do not remove shells, vegetation, rocks or marine life. Shells and rocks are a natural part of the intertidal zone, and serve as future homes for critters such as hermit crabs.
Should you move them, replace rocks and shells to their original position. Marine life growing on the bottom of the rocks will die when exposed to the sun and air.
Do not pull sea stars, mussels, limpets, and other tidepool life off rocks. Gulls will flip them over and tear out thier stomachs or soft bodies before the animals have a chance to re-grip.
Do not place marine life in containers for a closer look, even for a few minutes. This is often how animals are inadvertently moved from one inter-tidal zone to another, and they usually don't survive.
Dogs are NOT allowed. Do not bring your dogs or other pets to the tidepools.
Do not play loud radios or amplified music near or around the tidepools.
Do not disturb marine mammals, such as harbor seals in their rookery. Many seek this habitat as a refuge for birthing and raising their young. Stay at least 300 feet from any marine mammal.
