Observe marine mammal lifestyles from a kayak tour around the Monterey harbor, dig for critters in the sandy beach ecosystem, search nooks and crannies for invertebrates, and spot birds with binoculars- every day brings a new animal into focus! Get into the action by hopping on a surfboard and spending some time being a marine animal as well! Meet some local mammal experts and participate in conservation activities that show us how humans can work to protect these wonderful creatures who call the bay home. Campers must be able to swim.
