Ranger Sarah Lenz shares the wonders of the tidepools with visitors at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve.

The Moss Beach-based nonprofit organization Friends of Fitzgerald Marine Reserve invites fellow Coastsiders to enjoy our new Family Fun Days program. Family Fun Days are 2-hour to 4-hour events that give kids and their accompanying parent(s) a chance to have a fun ocean-related adventure together.

Our next Family Fun Day, "All About Algae," will be held at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach on Saturday, July 25, from 8-10 in the morning. Open to kids 8-12 accompanied by a parent, All About Algae will include a tour of the tidepools, fun games, and even a Seaweed Taste Testing station!

The event is FREE and open to the public, but pre-registration is required.

"Come have some fun in our beautiful Reserve—but don’t be surprised if you accidentally learn something," says Ranger Sarah Lenz.
Interested parents should call Ranger Sarah Lenz at (650) 728-3584 for more information and to register by 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 18th. "We are limiting participation to 30 kids and adults, so call soon!"

Future Family Fun Days will include:

  - Saturday September 19th: California Coastal Cleanup Day 9-NOON
  - Sunday October 4th: What Bird is That? 9-NOON
  - Thursday December 17th: Night Tidepooling Tour 4-7 pm
