Northern California Seaweeds

Friday | April 28, 2017 | 8:00 am — Sunday | April 30, 2017 | 5:00 pm

UC Davis Bodega Marine Laboratory | 2099 Westshore Rd, Bodega Bay, CA 94923

This workshop will focus on the common intertidal seaweeds of Bodega Head, a wild and diverse area and good representative of the northern California coast. Our home base at the Bodega Marine Laboratory provides easy access to the field. The low tides on Saturday and Sunday are in the morning (8:00 am and 9:00 am, respectively); we will try to get out to each site at least a half hour before the low. Our overview in the field will include the basics of seaweed ecology. For detailed studies of seaweed identity and form, we will take a closer look at our “catch” in the lab during the afternoons.

Beginners and experienced seaweed enthusiasts are welcome. We especially invite people interested in photography who are keen to contribute photos to California Seaweeds an online seaweed flora that we will introduce during the workshop. Please bring laptops or tablets.
