Sculptured Beach offers both beautiful wave-carved rock formations and some of the best tidepooling in the National Seashore. A rare, early winter midday low tide will give us a special opportunity to explore the amazing plants and animals that inhabit a narrow strip of rocky shoreline usually covered by breaking waves. As we step carefully through this life-filled intertidal zone, we'll look for adaptations and strategies that sea stars, anemones, seaweeds, mollusks, crabs and other organisms use to flourish in an environment of harsh extremes. On our hike along Limantour Beach to and from Sculptured Beach (2 miles each way) we'll also have opportunities to discuss coastal geology, view shorebirds and possibly spot tule elk on nearby hillsides.
