Into the Tides
When the tides recede deep into the ocean, a rich underwater world is uncovered. Sea stars, limpets, and barnacles cling to rocks, giant squishy sea hares plop into place and crabs scuttle over everything. The world revealed is dynamic and complicated, fluorescent and tiny, globular and expansive. Join LA-based nature workshop “Into the Field” as we explore one of California’s juiciest tidal areas, the coast of Cambria. We will learn about these ecosystems, the species we may find, and the history of their exploration, before taking one or two long expeditions “into the tides”.
Participants are invited to stay in shared, cozy cabins, complete with warm showers and nestled into a rare, ancient Monterey Pine grove. In the morning, you will wake to see families of deer tiptoeing through dappled sunlight and hear sea lions barking over softly crashing waves.
This is a unique opportunity to have a short, otherworldly adventure in a nearby, often covered universe. We will sketch, talk, look closely, hang out by a cozy fire and meet tons of nonhuman characters. As with all journeys into the wild, you may expect to return to your daily life with a shifted perspective and a wealth of new knowledge.
Tide pooling, or exploring tide pools, involves traversing slick and uneven terrain on foot. If you have mobility difficulties this workshop may be challenging.
