A new training course for Rocky Shore Naturalists will begin on March 1st 2010. We are looking for volunteers interested in the intertidal natural history and sharing the diversity of local intertidal life with visitors to the California Academy of Sciences and Duxbury Reef in Bolinas. Once training is completed, volunteers will work in the discovery tide pool at the Academy as well as work as roving docents and conduct scientific monitoring at Duxbury Reef. Meetings will take place at the Academy and at the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary Offices at Crissy Field. Previous knowledge of intertidal zoology and ecology is not required, but may be helpful. The only requirement is a passion for learning about California natural history, ecology and sharing that passion and knowledge with visitors.
