Brookings, OR – Hermit crabs, sea stars, sea lemons, chitons, anemones and seaweeds are just a few of the fascinating organisms you will find in southern Oregon’s tide pools in a workshop offered by Southwestern Oregon Community College in May.
At the Friday evening lecture, you will be introduced to Oregon’s marine invertebrates and the ecological community they are a part of. Early Saturday morning participants will go out to Lone Ranch State Park at low tide to find and observe the marine life in the rocky intertidal environment. For the field trip Saturday, dress warm and wear waterproof shoes/boots with good traction.
The lecture is scheduled for Friday, May 16, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Curry Campus in Brookings. The next morning, Saturday, May 17, the class will leave the Curry Campus at 7:30 a.m., returning from the field trip around 10:30 a.m. Nancy Treneman will teach this class. The cost of the workshop is $35. For more information or to register, please contact the Curry Campus at 541-469-5017.
