06.09.18 Coral St

Postby dabbott » Thu Apr 19, 2018 10:37 am

Join us for our spring survey of Coral St!

Coral St is located towards the end of the peninsula, in Pacific Grove, at the intersection of Oceanview Blvd. and Coral St. The site has little protection from the prevailing wind and swell, so if it looks like it's going to be too rough we'll reschedule if need be.

Coral St has become an urchin barren. It used to have a thick kelp mat over the summer, but last year the kelp was gone, and the urchins were out in abundance - we counted exactly one (1) giant kelp plant on the 6 core transects of the spring survey, and the fall survey was similar. It'll be interesting to see what it looks like this year.

So, we'll meet up at 8:00 AM on Saturday June 9th; park along Oceanview Blvd, more or less across the street from 1209 Oceanview. Bring 2 tanks, your survey gear, and whatever else you need for your surface interval. Note there are no bathroom facilities at the site.

Who's in? (please sign your posts when you reply)
1. David H (Survey Captain)
2. Robert (Serious Reefchecker) Kugel
3. Dave (Golden Slate) Chervin
4. John (weekend-only) Bates
5. Linda (not-so-serious) Reefchecker
6. Gary Henry (probably in given current work schedule)
7. Laura (assuming she survives the training)
