Join local expert Susie Bartz

for a walk at low-tide from Haskell’s Beach to the west, going up the coast toward Naples. The walk is about 3.5 miles, mostly on sand but over some beautiful bedrock areas. We’ll explore geology and some tidepools, including the seacliffs’ volcanic ash beds, estuaries, an ancient submarine landslide exposed in the cliff, sandcastle worm and limpet colonies, and the oil industry presence. And maybe a whale fossil with any luck! Bring water, hat, sturdy shoes, a walking stick for bedrock areas, and curiosity.
