FIELD TRIP (LEVEL 2/3)
Low tide at Harling Point uncovers a wide variety of species—if you have help and the patience to look for them! We’ll carefully meander over rocks and alongside tide pools looking for invertebrates, fish and algae and discuss their adaptations for survival in this habitat. On previous trips we’ve spotted Blood Stars, Leather Stars, Gumboot Chitons, Sea Lemons, Red Sponge Nudibranchs, Umbrella Crabs and more. Sea Lions and Oystercatchers too. Please wear appropriate foot wear for scaling WET rocks and slippery seaweed. A walking stick for balance may be helpful. Meet at the end of Crescent Road adjacent to the Chinese Cemetery at 10:00 a.m.
