The Marine Science Institute invites you to celebrate World Oceans Day with us on June 9th, 2012! We will be offering two boat trips aboard our 90 foot Research Vessel, the Robert G. Brownlee.
Each two hour voyage features a unique window into San Francisco Bay. We'll deploy our net to catch a sample of fish from the Bay, bring up a sample of the bottom and examine what interesting invertebrates inhabit the sea floor, and peek into the world of plankton. There is no better way to learn about the amazing ecology of San Francisco Bay!
Children prices apply to ages 5-12. Must be at least 5 years old to board
Trip 1 Departs at 1pm, returns at 3pm
Trip 2 Departs at 3pm, returns at 5pm
RSVP online through our web site: http://www.sfbaymsi.org/oceansday.html
The idea for a World Oceans Day was born in 1992 at the first Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. The idea was to draw attention to the interconnected nature of our watery planet. Oceans Day is not celebrated in hundreds of cities around the world! A directory of events can be found at worldoceansday.org.
