Join us for a unique tidepooling experience on January 20, 2023 during the California King Tide! King Tides are the very highest tides of the year. Conversely, the low tides that occur at this time are the very lowest tides and perfect for exploring tidepools and observing their amazing biodiversity. 

Meet Earthroots instructors at a beach in Laguna during the King Tide (more details sent to class registrants) to learn about the animals that make their homes in this ever-changing environment when the water recedes. Learn about tide pool habitats, tidal zones, animal identification and adaptations, and human impact and conservation. Come hear a story, play games, and draw and journal your experiences. End the day with sand in your shoes, salt on your skin, and a deeper connection to nature on the beach.
