Thanks to Margaret Lidkea, for all her work in organizing and hosting the Friends of Uplands Park Tide Pools and Sea Birds “Nature Walk” at Cattle Point (June 15, 2014). With fairly good weather and very low tides, folks of all ages went out to the exposed tide pools to identify and to learn. A lovely way to spend time on Father’s Day.
Margaret sends this email message, and some photos, to to thank participants and volunteers:
Thank you very much for your contributions to a wonderful afternoon at the Cattle Point Tidal Pools and Sea Birds event. People (Geoffrey counted 67 at one point) were very engaged in everything so it was good to have all of you helping.
Chris [Ocean Physics Scientist]…you grounded people with your talks on tides and the ocean physics. Great to see you so animated.
Melissa and Gavin [marine biology experts from RBCM]…you were wonderful catching and teaching about the creatures …saw things I hadn’t before and it was wonderful to have a “newly named” sea star. Enjoyed the different kinds of sculpins.
Geoffrey [birder extraordinaire]…excellent with the birds and taking people around Cattle Pt and beyond when they wanted to…your group was delighted.
Elizabeth and Kathleen [FOUP Steering Committee] …thank you for welcoming people, directing them and looking after all the equipment, the head table and ID books.
Hoping that FOUP will do this again next June.
You are all so inspiring,
Margaret Lidkea, Co-Chair of FOUP
