We enjoyed a wonderful sunny visit to the Gulf of the Farallones Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center today. We learned all about crabs: their life cycle, how to tell if it’s a boy or girl, what they need to survive, their different body parts…we even held purple shore crabs and had a few lucky volunteers dress up as crabs for some interactive fun. We also enjoyed exploring the beach with a guide, hunting for and learning about sand hoppers and dipping our toes in the bay! Many thanks to our wonderful parent chaperones for making it all possible.

More pictures to come from our photographer Amy Chin, but here are a few to tie you over 🙂
