Through science presentations, hands-on examination of specimens, and land and boat-based field observations, participants will gain first-hand knowledge and experience about the marine wildlife in our backyard.

Specific topics will include comparative anatomy and physiology, population status, health threats, and human impact via the land-sea connection. Enjoy an evening wine and cheese event at the Cal Poly Pier, lectures and labs on the Cal Poly campus, and chartered boat trip in Morro Bay, all while learning how to become good ocean stewards.
