Join us February 9 and 10 for a day of learning and exploring at the Cabrillo National Monument during the annual Whale Watching Weekend. 

WiLDCOAST Marine Coordinator Diane Castaneda will be giving a lecture on San Diego’s new Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) or “underwater parks” followed by a tour of San Diego’s richest tidepools located in the Cabrillo MPA!

You don’t have to go into the water to enjoy the vibrant sea life of San Diego.  Our local tidepools are a window into the underwater world where you can see sea stars, sea urchins, anemones and sea hares. 

When: Saturday, February 9 and Sunday, February 10, from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Where: Cabrillo National Monument

Invite your friends and family, this is a great activity for kids of all ages!
