Snapshot Cal Coast 2018
Join researchers from the Natural History Musem of Los Angeles County as we take advantage of the lowest tide cycle of the year to explore coastal marine life at Wilders Addition Park, San Pedro.

The data we collect will be compiled into Snapshot Cal Coast and other state-wide efforts so scientists can gain a better understanding of the organisms that live in this section of the California coast.
