Cabrillo Aquarium offering tidepool walks on rocky shore

Explore one of the lowest tides of the year on the rocky shore with Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, 3720 Stephen M. White Dr. in San Pedro, on Saturday, April 10 from 12:30pm to 2pm or Sunday, April 11 from 1pm to 2:30pm. Bring family and friends to the aquarium’s John M. Olguin Auditorium for an informative slide show, followed by a walk led by Cabrillo Marine Aquarium education staff to the nearby Point Fermin State Marine Park.
The tidepools offer protection to a variety of local tidepool animals and seaweeds. Among the organisms are tidepool sculpin, sea urchins, sea hares, hermit crabs, feather-boa kelp, and an occasional octopus. An accessible pathway leads to the edge of the tidepools.
This is a free event; however, reservations are required for groups of ten or more. Young children must be accompanied by an adult. Non-slip shoes and outdoor clothing are recommended for navigating the slippery, rocky shore.
