The first of these shoreline natural history-oriented walks takes place on Friday, Aug. 12, beginning at 8 a.m., at Manhattan Beach State Recreation Site (just north of Rockaway Beach). This beachwalk will focus on the ecology of sandy beaches, from the low-tide zone to the high beach.
The other is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 14, 7:30 a.m., at Oswald West State Park. This field experience will be devoted to the rocky intertidal shoreline.
