February 26th, 2017
Plankton Discovery Field Seminar with Point Reyes Field Institute
When: 9:00 am-3:30pm
Topic: Discover the microscopic world of plankton! At the mercy of ocean currents, micro and macroscopic plankton play a mighty role in the ocean food web, act as a carbon sink and supplier of oxygen. Did you know the ocean off the California Coast is one of the top 4 biodiverse regions in the world? Come find out why and what role plankton plays in this incredible ocean ecosystem off the Point Reyes coast that earned protections as Greater Farallones and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries. Participants will learn about different types of plankton and their adaptations for survival, their role in the food web, and changes in ocean health that impact plankton and the marine food web. After we make our own plankton nets, we’ll head out to a local field site to collect plankton samples, then return to the Red Barn to observe our catch under the power of microscopes. Games, experiments, and hands-on projects make this class a fun way to learn about life in our neighboring ocean.
Instructors: Jennifer Stock and Leslie Adler-vanbrook
