Rocky Shore 

August 26, 2009


The Rocky Shore Partnership trains Academy docents and Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary volunteers as Rocky Shore Naturalists.  These naturalists work at Duxbury Marine Reserve in Bolinas, CA, as roving, interpretive naturalists and contribute toward on-going intertidal monitoring research.  While out on the reef, Rocky Shore Naturalists teach visitors tidepool etiquette and natural history of intertidal animals and algae.  Rocky Shore Naturalists also work in the California Coast exhibit at the Academy of Sciences and help visitors make connections between the Discovery Tidepool in the California Coast Exhibit and our local National Marine Sanctuaries. This project is part of the Duxbury Reef Rocky Intertidal Restoration Project supported by the Cape Mohican Trustee Council with funds recovered from the SS Cape Mohican oil spill in 1996.  The California Academy of Sciences and the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary are working together to increase public awareness of our amazing, local, intertidal habitat through environmental education, science and stewardship.
Follow our adventures in the museum and on the reef…
